Since 2012, Dr Levis has helped lead the development of the DEPRESsion Screening Data (DEPRESSD) Project (www.depressd.ca), which uses an IPDMA approach to evaluate evidence on the accuracy of depression screening tools, and she is now a member of the project steering committee. She is also a member of the WHO’s Zika virus Individual Participant Data Consortium and of several groups developing reporting guidelines and quality assessment tools for test evaluation, prediction, and IPDMA.
