About the Workshop  »  Who Should Attend

This workshop is intended for researchers, clinicians, educators, statisticians, graduate students, and anyone with an interest in understanding or performing meta-analyses. Our approach is primarily conceptual rather than mathematical, and participants with only one or two statistics classes in their background should be able to fully understand the materials.

The techniques that we discuss in these workshops are relevant to any field where a meta-analysis might be employed. Participants typically work in such fields as medicine, epidemiology, health sciences, biostatistics, nursing, veterinary medicine, psychology, education, criminal justice, ecology, marketing, among others.

Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions about the materials.

Comprehensive Meta-Analysis is an indispensable tool for efficient problem solving in meta-analyses. Regardless of whether or not you are a statistician, the software leads you to the world of meta-analysis quickly. Comprehensive Meta-Analysis is extremely easy to use and understand and it is a terrific product.

I have used Comprehensive Meta-Analysis since I was a student and it has been the basis for dozens of meta-analysis publications since then. The strengths of the software include its intuitive approaches to statistical issues, ease of use, and clear presentation of the data. Journals appreciate that important changes in figures can be made rapidly and clearly. This has also been an excellent tool for teaching students and colleagues about conducting meta-analysis - students enjoy the clarity of presentation and ease of use. With all the ease of use, it is important to note that the software allows a variety of statistical approaches that may be difficult to implement in other software, from choices of meta-regression effects to presentations of heterogeneity. For my group, this software is indispensable.
