Dr Deborah Caldwell


My current research interests are the application of network meta-analyses within the areas of obstetrics and psychiatric effectiveness research. I am a co-convenor of the Cochrane Comparing Multiple Interventions Methods Group and member of the Society of Research Synthesis Methods. I have worked with Dr Rachel Churchill on a network meta-analysis of psychotherapies for depression and am a statistical editor for the Cochrane Depression, Anxiety & Neuroses group. I am involved with several other synthesis projects in psychiatric intervention research I am also affiliated to Professor Tony Ades' "Multi-parameter Evidence Synthesis" programme. This programme develops and evaluates new statistical methods for evidence synthesis. I completed my PhD in 2008 which examined the use of Mixed Treatment Comparison (MTC) methods in Health Technology Assessment. The work in my thesis promoted the use of MTC to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence for technology appraisals.
