This 2 day workshop will describe the principles of how to assess and interpret evidence from systematic reviews using the GRADE approach. The GRADE approach includes 8 domains to assess when considering a body of evidence from randomised and non-randomised studies: risk of bias, inconsistency, indirectness, imprecision, publication bias, large effect, dose response, and opposing confounding.


  • Learn about the 8 domains of the GRADE approach to assess the certainty of evidence from a systematic review;
  • Apply the GRADE approach in a variety of examples in clinical care and public health systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials and non-randomised studies;
  • Use the GRADEpro software to create evidence tables to summarise and present the results of systematic reviews to decision makers.


Physicians, Faculty, Staff, Other Professionals: $100
