Evidence synthesis for medical decision making and the appropriate use of quality scores
Meta-analyses today continue to be run using conventional random-effects models that ignore tangible information from studies such as the quality of the studies involved, despite the expectation that results of better quality studies reflect more valid results. Previous research has suggested that quality scores derived from such quality appraisals are unlikely to be useful in meta-analysis, because they would produce biased estimates of effects that are unlikely to be offset by a variance...[Show more]
