This package contains a number of vignettes, each one walking through an example analysis.
The table below gives an overview.
Many of these examples recreate analyses from the series of Technical Support Documents published by the NICE Decision Support Unit [@TSD_evsynth].
The exceptions are atrial fibrillation [@Cooper2009], white blood cell transfusion [@Turner2012], and plaque psoriasis multilevel network meta-regression [@methods_paper;@Phillippo2022].
