Comparative effectiveness research is a rigorous evaluation of the impact of different treatment options – some of which may not have been compared directly – that are available for treating a given medical condition for a particular set of patients. As a key part of comparative effectiveness research, network meta-analysis enables us to combine trials involving different sets of treatments, using a network of evidence, within a single analysis. This integrated and unified analysis incorporates all direct and indirect comparative evidence about treatments. This presentation highlights and illustrates the concepts and assumptions of network meta-analysis.
