Consortium Grand Rounds
Free CME/CE Webinar!
Thursday, March 16, 2017

12 - 1 p.m. ET

Topic:
What is GRADE and how is it used to determine the quality of the evidence?
Examples from Cochrane reviews to help improve your understanding and use.

Background and Webinar Focus:

GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) is a formal process to rate the quality of effect estimates from systematic reviews and the strength of recommendations in guidelines. Many organizations use GRADE or modifications of GRADE, including the WHO, the UK National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Kaiser Permanente, and others. The Cochrane collaboration uses GRADE principles to evaluate the quality of the evidence for the outcomes included in Cochrane systematic reviews. We will explain GRADE, outline the GRADE process, and demonstrate the application of GRADE to effect estimates from systematic reviews, using Cochrane reviews of complementary medicine interventions as examples.
