In the spotlight 2023: Prospective Meta-analysis Methods Group

2023 Prospective Meta-analysis Methods Group Report

We are celebrating the achievements of Cochrane’s Methods Groups from the last year. Today we are putting Prospective Meta-Analysis Methods Group in the spotlight. 

Prospective meta-analysis (PMA) is a meta-analysis of studies which were identified, evaluated and determined to be eligible for the meta-analysis before the results of any of those studies became known. The Prospective Meta-Analysis Methods Group aims to develop guidance on how to perform this type of meta-analysis, provide a mechanism for evaluating protocols to ensure they are indeed PMA and develop appropriate methodological standards for PMA.
