    The Australian Pharmaceutical Biostatistics Group (APBG) and the Statistical Society of Australia warmly invite you to a workshop on "Network meta-analysis and population adjustment for decision-making", presented by David Phillippo on 4-5 November 2019 at the Macquarie University Sydney Campus.

    Network meta-analysis (NMA) is a method for combining evidence from several studies on multiple treatments of interest to provide a consistent set of relative effect estimates and is widely used for healthcare decision-making and guideline development. More recently, population adjustment methods have been proposed that use individual patient data from one or more studies to relax the assumptions of NMA and adjust for differences in effect modifying variables between populations, or even to incorporate disconnected networks and single-arm studies. The methods are becoming increasingly common in technology appraisal submissions to reimbursement agencies and raise new questions and challenges for analysts anddecision-makers.

    Our workshop presenter is David Phillippo, a Senior Research Associate in Statistics at the University of Bristol, UK. His research focuses on methodology for evidence synthesis, Bayesian Network Meta-Analysis (NMA), population adjustment methods for indirect comparisons, and accounting for bias in clinical guidelines. He is the lead author of a recent Technical Support Document published by the NICE Decision Support Unit on population-adjusted indirect comparisons, and has developed new methods extending the NMA framework to incorporate population adjustment combining individual patient data and published summary data.
