New NICE Technical Support Document (TSD)

Well sort of…..it’s an updated version of TSD 2, “A general linear modelling framework for pair-wise and network meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials”.  Specifically, the coding to Example 6 (Psoriasis, from page 83 of the TSD) has been revised.

All TSDs are available from the DSU website here.

What are TSDs?  The TSDs are commissioned by NICE with the aim of providing further information about how to implement the approaches described in the current NICE Guide to the Methods of Technology Appraisal. They provide a review of the current state of the art in each topic area, and make clear recommendations on the implementation of methods and reporting standards where it is appropriate to do so. They aim to provide assistance to all those involved in submitting or critiquing evidence as part of NICE Technology Appraisals, whether companies, assessment groups or any other stakeholder type.
