Workshop: Use of meta-analysis for causal inference in health researchMassey University logo
Presented by Professor Allan Smith, School of Public Health, University of Berkeley, California

Meta-analysis has become a major tool in medical and public health research. We can rarely make a causal conclusion from just one study, so we need ways to assess causal evidence integrating evidence from several or many studies. Meta-analysis can help us do this.

This workshop will examine the critical role that meta-analysis can play in causal inference from health studies. Participants will have a hands-on experience in conducting and interpreting a meta-analysis using Excel spreadsheets and data from a set of epidemiological studies.
