The SSA is delighted to invite you to the following webinar 

An application of network meta-analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of electronic cigarette on smoking cessation

on Thursday, 10 September from 1-2pm AEST via Zoom.

About this webinar:

Network meta-analysis (NMA) is a technique for evidence synthesis and is used to compare treatment effects of different types of interventions. In this seminar, I will demonstrate the application of NMA on evaluating the evidence for the effectiveness of electronic cigarette on smoking cessation, compared to traditional nicotine replacement therapy and nicotine-free control conditions. Data and analysis script will be available on my Github account.
