Introduction:
Meta-analysis is a statistical technique for combining the findings from independent studies. It is most often used to assess the clinical effectiveness of healthcare interventions; it does this by combining data from two or more randomized control trials.

  Meta-Analysis - Free IOMC Online Workshop

Meta-analysis of trials provides a precise estimate of treatment effect, giving due weight to the size of the different studies included. Meta analysis can be used as a guide to answer the question 'does what we are doing make a difference to X?', even if 'X' has been measured using different instruments across a range of different people. Meta-analysis provides a systematic overview of quantitative research which has examined a particular question.
The first meta-analysis was performed by Karl Pearson in 1904, in an attempt to overcome the problem of reduced statistical power in studies with small sample sizes; analyzing the results from a group of studies can allow more accurate data analysis. Although meta-analysis is widely used in epidemiology and evidence-based medicine today, a meta-analysis of a medical treatment was not published until 1955.
