  • To become familiar with the process for developing a reporting guideline as was followed for the development of the PRISMA NMA extension.
  • To become familiar with some of the key guidances which emerged from our efforts that will appear in the PRISMA NMA guidance, and how we plan to distribute this information to our target audiences of researchers, clinicians, decision-makers and journal editors.
