'What sort of review should I do?' Findings from the MACH (Meta-analysis, Complexity and Heterogeneity) project
Date: Tuesday 21 February 2017
Speaker: Mark Petticrew (Professor of Public Health Evaluation) and Lambert Felix (Research Fellow), LSHTM
Location: Room 822, 20 Bedford Way, UCL Institute of Education, London WC1H 0AL
MACH is an MRC-funded project investigating different approaches to evidence synthesis and meta-analysis, and in particular how systematic reviewers take account of heterogeneity and complexity. It has involved a methodological review, interviews with researchers, and new research comparing meta-analytic and narrative review methods. This seminar will present the main findings. The project is a collaboration between LSHTM, the EPPI-Centre, the University of Warwick, and the University of York Centre for Reviews and Dissemination.
