Exploring Heterogeneity in Prevalence Reviews 

When: Tuesday 19th March from 13:00 to 14:00 (CET)
Where: Online via Zoom

Does it make sense to pool prevalence studies together? For instance, what does it mean that the average risk of lower back pain during pregnancy is 59% based on 25 studies from different countries? Can we use existing statistical measures to determine how much the studies differ? And what does heterogeneity mean for our interpretation of pooled results? Celina Borges Migliavaca will help enlighten us on these topics in this webinar.
