A Hierarchical Bayesian meta-analysis model developed by Dumouchel is derived by implementing the General Bayesian Linear model (GBLM) theorem. The aim is to obtain the joint posterior distribution of all parameters in the model. Simulation study is conducted to confirm the estimation of all parameters of interest. Results show parameter estimates as close to the true values indicating parameter stability.
