The Evidence Synthesis Methods team is an academic research group focusing on methods for synthesizing evidence of individual studies to infer about the efficacy and safety of any type of interventions (e.g. educational, medical, psychological etc.). We are located within the University of Ioannina, which is one of the largest universities in Greece
Our team has significant expertise in knowledge synthesis and network meta-analysis. We have developed and published statistical methodology for network meta-analysis including models to account for missing outcome data, publication bias, outlier detection methods, exploring heterogeneity etc. We have participated, designed and conducted the analysis in many large network meta-analysis in the field on mental health, nephrology, diabetes, geriatrics etc.
We aim to advance the existing methodology for network meta-analysis to synthesize complex interventions accounting for component effects using aggregated and/or individual patient data.
