Basing decisions on findings of an individual study might be misleading, while basing decisions on expert opinion can be biased. Furthermore, it is difficult for knowledge users to keep up with the literature. As such, a knowledge synthesis is a useful tool that can be used to make sense of the results of many different studies, statistically combine the results of multiple studies, and justify the need for a new study. 

Therefore, knowledge synthesis is central to evidence-informed decision-making. Network meta-analysis is one approach, defined by the Cochrane Handbook as “an extension of indirect comparisons that allows the combination of direct evidence from head-to-head studies with indirect comparisons, and also the simultaneous analysis of the comparative effects of many interventions".

Objectives: Knowledge synthesis is central to evidence-informed decision-making. Network meta-analysis is one approach, defined by the Cochrane Handbook as “an extension of indirect comparisons that allows the combination of direct evidence from head-to-head studies with indirect comparisons, and also the simultaneous analysis of the comparative effects of many interventions". By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: define knowledge synthesis, define network meta-analysis, and describe how network meta-analysis can be used for decision-making.
