Thresholds and Invariant Intervals for Network Meta-Analysis

Calculation and presentation of decision-invariant bias adjustment thresholds and intervals for Network Meta-Analysis, as described by Phillippo et al. (2018) . These describe the smallest changes to the data that would result in a change of decision.


The package nmathresh provides functions for the calculation and presentation of decision-invariant bias adjustment thresholds and intervals for Network Meta-Analysis, as described by Phillippo et al. (2018, doi:10.1111/rssa.12341). These describe the smallest changes to the data that would result in a change of decision.

Worked examples showing the use of nmathresh can be found in the vignettes:

News

nmathresh 0.1.4

  • Feature: Diagnostics from recon_vcov when using NNLS are now returned as additional attributes to the matrix (as well as being printed).
  • Updated references to Phillippo et al. JRSS:A paper, which is now in print.

nmathresh 0.1.3

  • Fix: Previous release introduced a bug where a single column passed to add.columns resulted in an error.
  • Feature: Warn when arguments passed to nma_thresh are mismatched (nmatype options with X, mu.design, and delta.design), indicating possible user error.

nmathresh 0.1.2

  • Fix: Additional columns specified with add.columns in thresh_forest are now sorted along with the rest of the table when orderby is given.
  • Fix: Bugs in thresh_forest with infinite or undefined data estimates and variances.
  • Fix: Covariance matrices created using Matrix package are acceptable always (not just in the block diagonal case).

nmathresh 0.1.1

  • Fix DOI brackets in DESCRIPTION for CRAN.

nmathresh 0.1.0

  • Feature: Provide additional columns in the table produced by thresh_forest using argument add.columns.
  • Feature: Thresholds for decisions based on minimal clinically important difference. Some internal API changes required, but these should not affect the end user.

nmathresh 0.0.5

  • Update citation with DOI
  • Minor display fix in vignette

nmathresh 0.0.4

Version accompanying Phillippo et al. (2017), available from JRSS:A code archive.
