Sensitivity analysis allowing for inclusion of data from Excluded studies
Dear IMS Team,
I am updating a review where we want to make a sensitivity analysis where we include some studies that were originally excluded (I.e. to see if a more broad approach of study inclusion will influence our results). Unfortunately it seem that RevMan only allows for the inclusion of INCLUDED studies in forest plots. So since the studies are EXCLUDED we cannot include them in our analysis. We have decided just to report the data in the text, but it would be nice if RevMan would allow for inclusion of other studies than the INCLUDED studies.
No quick value score assigned – would first need to establish what current policy/ guidance state about excluded studies and sensitivity analysis.
Might be easier to do once we implement this planned idea: Facility for keeping unpublished sensitivity analyses in review
