Methods of systematic review and meta-analysis mainly following the different steps described in the format of a Cochrane Review, including: formulating the problem, locating and selecting studies, assessing the quality of studies, collecting data, analysing data using quantitative meta-analytic methods (homogeneity, random and fixed effect models) and presenting results as tables and graphics (e.g. funnel plot, forest plot), interpreting results and synthesis.
A magistral course will be illustrated by concrete cases and completed by a practical approach. The purpose of the course is to allow the student to acquire a critical and practical approach of modern methods of systematic review of the litterature. To this aim the student will receive a paper reporting a problem approached by meta-analysis. He will have to retrieve the different concepts presented in the course and to make a crtical analysis of this. The synthesis report concerning this parper is part of the evaluation.
