Learning Objectives 

At the conclusion of this tutorial, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the key concepts of Bayesian statistical methods, computation, and software;
  • Discuss the use of Bayesian evidence synthesis techniques when applied to network (multiple treatment) meta-analysis for drug safety and efficacy;
  • Identify how compounds fare statistically in relation to others, and adjusting for key confounders;
  • Define "contrast-based" and "arm-based" NMA methods, as well as approaches that use aggregate versus individual-level patient data, and handle mixed outcome types (say, both binary and continuous).
