Tutor expertise: Meta-analysis
Meta-analysis is taught on the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care and is also an optional module on the MSc in EBHC Medical Statistics and EBHC Systematic Reviews. In addition, students can access our supervisory faculty to complete a meta-analysis as part of their dissertation on any of our Masters or DPhil programme.
Let's meet some of our tutors, highly qualified in conducting meta-analysis to extract data:
Jenny Hirst is a module coordinator on the Meta-analysis module and has expertise in quantitative methods and meta-analysis, with interests in chronic kidney disease and monitoring of long-term conditions. Jenny recently published Performance of point-of-care HbA1c test devices: Implications for use in clinical practice - A systematic review and meta-analysis.
|Julie McLellen is a co-lead on the Meta-analysis module. Julie's current projects include accuracy of testing for serious bacterial infection in the immunocompromised in ambulatory care and a methodological study of stepped wedge trial design.|
|Dr Annette Plüddemann is Course Director of the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care and is interested in how we use evidence to inform diagnostic decisions and the quality of that evidence. Annette's recent meta analysis' include Diagnostic accuracy of point-of-care natriuretic peptide testing for chronic heart failure in ambulatory care and Diagnostic value of symptoms and signs for identifying urinary tract infection in older adult outpatients.|
Richard Stevens is Course Director of the MSc in EBHC Medical Statistics. With research interests in monitoring chronic diseases, especially diabetes and hypertension and clinical prediction rules, Richard is highly active in conducting and disseminating systematic reviews, meta-analyses.
|Thomas Fanshawe is a Senior Medical Statistician, leading on the Clinical Prediction Rules module. His research is based on the development and application of statistical methods to studies in primary care, including diagnosis and clinical risk prediction, and the application of meta-analytic methods.|
|Georgia Richards is the EBM Medical Teaching & Development Lead. Georgia welcomes supervision queries from undergraduate and graduate students on taught and research programmes who are interested in pursuing research in open science, open data and meta-research. |
José Ordóñez-Mena is a Medical Statistician, interested in the analysis of large electronic health records databases. He has worked with the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) and the Oxford-Royal College of General Practitioners Clinical Informatics Digital Hub (ORCHID), both are primary care databases of English patients.
José also has expertise in meta-analysis methods and is interested in advanced methods such as network meta-analysis.
His work mostly looks at the clinical areas of cardiovascular disease, renal disease, cancer, and multimorbidity. Previously I worked in the areas of aging research, clinical, nutritional and genetic epidemiology.
