Description


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.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Understand the guideline development process, from topic and question development to making recommendations;

2. Apply GRADE to evaluate the certainty of the evidence and to use the Evidence to Decision framework to make recommendations;

3. Use the GRADEpro software to facilitate the guideline panel meeting to make recommendations.

Faculty:

Nancy Santesso is Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact at McMaster University and a Registered Dietitian. She is the Deputy Director of Cochrane Canada, a member of the Governing Board of the Cochrane Collaboration, and editor of the Cochrane Consumers and Communication Review Group. She is also a member of the GRADE Working Group since 2009. She has worked with many guideline panels of professional organisations and the World Health Organisation internationally to facilitate guideline development. She provides training nationally and internationally about methods for guideline development, the use of the GRADE approach in guideline development and about the conduct of systematic reviews. Her other research interests include the communication of evidence and guidelines to patients and the public.
