This is one of the online lectures (April 2020) given for the Intermediate Epidemiology course. The voice recording is sub-optimal as I had laryngitis. The lecture is on meta-analysis and begins about 1 minute into the video.
My take home messages from this lecture were;
- Always appropriate to perform a systematic review but a meta-analysis may not always be appropriate
- Random effects model is always to be preferred (will reduce to fixed effect if no between study variation)
- Biases may also exist in MA and so critical analytical and reading skills remain essential
