Welcome to the Keele Individual Participant Data (IPD) Meta-Analysis Toolbox

IPD meta-analyses, which synthesise patient-level data from primary studies rather than aggregate results from study reports, are increasingly influencing clinical practice. This toolbox will equip you with the practical resources and information needed to carry out all stages of an IPD meta-analysis, supporting you to overcome their challenges and deliver them efficiently and effectively. Click on the boxes below to access a range of information and practical resources to support you - from deciding whether an IPD meta-analysis is appropriate, to obtaining and analysing data, as well as reporting and disseminating results.

We have two training courses linked to this toolbox, find out more on our Further Training and Information page.
