PHP110 Review and Comparison of Different National Guidelines on the Implementation of Network Meta-Analysis [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
For an evaluation of a treatment to be truly useful, it should be compared to the other treatments that may be used in the patient group under consideration. Randomised controlled trials are a key source of evidence for these comparisons. The techniques of indirect comparisons and network meta-analysis allow the complete network of trial evidence to be evaluated in order to obtain estimates of comparative efficacy. These techniques may be the only source of estimates of comparative effectiveness if trials directly comparing the treatments of interest have not been conducted and may provide useful additional evidence if both direct and indirect comparisons exist.
