Rank-heat Plot

    The rank-heat plot is a novel way to present the results from a network meta-analysis including multiple outcomes

    Veroniki AA, Straus SE, Fyraridis A, Tricco AC. The rank-heat plot is a novel way to present the results from a network meta-analysis including multiple outcomes. J Clin Epidemiol. 2016;76:193-9. DOI: 10.1016/j.jclinepi.2016.02.016

    Impact:

    • The rank-heat plot offers a novel approach to present the results of a NMA in a way that may increase end-user interpretability; in particular, it presents the results of ranking statistics for multiple outcomes in a single figure.
    • It will be tested in a future study to explore its impact on understanding NMA results.

    Review and Assessment of Network meta-analysis for Knowledge Uptake (RANK) Study

    Impact:

    • This study will advance the understanding and uptake of NMAs that are used to inform health care decision-making by clinicians. Results from this project will establish whether rank-heat plots are an appropriate and preferred method to display NMA results for decision makers compared to SUCRA plots (usual care).
