Gathering together a group of experts to make recommendations based on ‘expert opinion’ is no longer an acceptable method for developing guidelines. This workshop takes participants through the whole process of making recommendations in guidelines. We will describe and allow participants ample time to practice methods for how to decide on priority recommendation questions and outcomes, create the guideline panel and manage conflicts of interest, decide on an approach (de novo or adaptation), assess the evidence using GRADE, prepare for the guideline panel meeting, make recommendations using the GRADE Evidence to Decision framework, and present the recommendations for users.
- Learn how to develop high-quality guidelines to inform clinical practice and health policy;
- Apply GRADE to evaluate the certainty of the evidence and to use the Evidence to Decision framework to make recommendations;
- Use the GRADEpro software to facilitate guideline development.
Physicians, Faculty, Staff, Other Professionals: $400
