Pre-Conference Course 4

GRADEPart 1 - Using the GRADE approach to assess the certainty of evidence inGuideline Development

This workshop is Part 1 of a two-part series of workshops about the use of GRADE in guideline development. To create guidelines, developers must synthesise the evidence, assess the evidence, and then use the evidence to make recommendations. This workshop, Part 1, will cover how to use GRADE to assess the certainty of evidence. Part 2 will cover how to incorporate the evidence in the decision-making process to create recommendations using the Evidence to Decision Framework.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how the GRADE approach fits into the overall process of guideline development
  • Learn about the GRADE approach to assess the certainty of evidence from a synthesis of randomised or non-randomised studies, including the domains of risk of bias, inconsistency, indirectness, imprecision, publication bias, large effects, dose response and opposing residual confounding
  • Apply this knowledge during hands-on exercises using examples
  • Create evidence tables using the GRADEpro software
