Network Meta-Analysis using Frequentist Methods

A comprehensive set of functions providing frequentist methods for network meta-analysis and supporting Schwarzer et al. (2015) <DOI:10.1007/978-3-319-21416-0>, Chapter 8 "Network Meta-Analysis": - frequentist network meta-analysis following R<c3><bc>cker (2012) <DOI:10.1002/jrsm.1058>; - net heat plot and design-based decomposition of Cochran's Q according to Krahn et al. (2013) <DOI:10.1186/1471-2288-13-35>; - measures characterizing the flow of evidence between two treatments by K<c3><b6>nig et al. (2013) <DOI:10.1002/sim.6001>; - ranking of treatments (frequentist analogue of SUCRA) according to R<c3><bc>cker & Schwarzer (2015) <DOI:10.1186/s12874-015-0060-8>; - partial order of treatment rankings ('poset') and Hasse diagram for 'poset' (Carlsen & Bruggemann, 2014) <DOI:10.1002/cem.2569>; - split direct and indirect evidence to check consistency (Dias et al., 2010) <DOI:10.1002/sim.3767>; - league table with network meta-analysis results; - automated drawing of network graphs described in R<c3><bc>cker & Schwarzer (2016) <DOI:10.1002/jrsm.1143>.
