How to Use EBM/GRADE to Develop Guidelines

Wednesday, October 3, 8 a.m. – Noon

The drive for the optimal guideline grading/rating of evidence framework has driven the emergence of the Grading of Recommendation Assessment, Development and Evaluation framework (GRADE). GRADE application in the production of clinical practice guidelines can result in trustworthy guideline recommendations, and as such it is imperative that persons who play a role in guideline panels have some training and orientation in the guideline development process itself, as well as an acute focus on the underpinnings of GRADE. This 4-hour workshop offers such training and orientation to attendees and particularly for those who plan to serve on guideline panels in the future.
