Event description

Description

This one-day course is designed for systematic review authors and others involved in evidence syntheses. It covers the main principles of the GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) approach and provides practical guidance on using the methods to summarise evidence for policy and practice. GRADE has become the gold standard approach for summarising findings in systematic reviews and rating the certainty of a body of evidence. Recommended for use in Cochrane reviews and NHMRC-approved guidelines, GRADE provides a transparent method for making the complex decisions required to draw conclusions about the certainty of evidence.

This workshop provides participants with practical skills required to start using the GRADE approach in a systematic review or guideline. The course assumes some familiarity with systematic review methods, in particular the assessment of risk of bias and the interpretation of effect estimates

Outline

  • Overview of the GRADE approach and systematic reviews
  • Assessing the certainty of evidence using GRADE
  • Creating ‘Summary of Findings’ tables and Evidence Profiles from systematic reviews of interventions
  • Software to support the use of GRADE
  • Applying GRADE in more complex scenarios

The workshop involves a mix of presentations, interactive examples and hands-on exercises. Electronic copies of the slides are provided at the workshop. Participants require a Wi-Fi enabled laptop or tablet for GRADEPro GDT training.
