BMJOPEN2014007449F2: Pooling of randomised controlled trials. Adapted from a previous publication.4

Mentions: Pooled analyses of five RCTs1011181928 comprising n=5470 subjects showed no evidence (p=0.79) of an effect of mass-media campaigns in modifying use of illicit drugs (standardised mean difference (SMD) −0.02; 95% CI −0.15 to 0.12; figure 2 and table 3). There was some evidence (p=0.020) of heterogeneity between studies.
