The workshop featured a presentation to give the team a full insight into sources of funding and the types of grants HEHTA is involved in, including research, programme, global groups, methodological and fellowship grants. After the presentation there was a session on the grant-writing process followed by final group sessions facilitated by HEHTA grant holders.
22/09/2020 NIHR Complex Reviews Support Unit (CRSU) Webinar - Living Systematic Reviews: Opportunities and Challenges NIHR CRSU webinar explored a broad perspective of Living Systematic Reviews (LSR), from the process of living search, inclusion and update of the analysis, to issues around multiple testing in a LSR and the risks of stopping when the analysis gives an (erroneous) ‘positive result’, and finally, looking at LSR in the context of our vision for a greater marriage of evidence synthesis and original research. How can the LSR inform the next trial and how will that trial feed into the LSR? We will share our experience of using the CRSU Covid-19 MetaInsight App (particularly the automation aspects) to aid the visualisation of living network meta-analysis.
