This project is part of a Doctor of Medical Science research higher degree.
There are three main parts to this project, of which this is part two.
Part Two will involve a further systematic review of all randomised controlled trial abstracts presented at the ASA Annual Meetings 2010-2013. This time period has been chosen as it is five years after the implementation of mandatory trial registration in 2004. From these abstracts, the odds ratio for abstracts with positive results proceeding to journal publication will be calculated. The primary endpoint will be a comparison between the odds ratios from Part one and from Part two. We define a 33% decrease in odds ratio as clinically significant. This corresponds to a new odds ratio of 1.33.
