The following events were held on November 29-30. Please refer to the following for details such as lecture videos.
GRADE working group
The GRADE working group is an international working group of individuals who develop and provide the GRADE approach. Here we have gathered various information on the GRADE approach.
The GRADE Handbook introduces the process for using the GRADE approach.
GRADE Series in Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
In the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology, we introduce the GRADE approach by topic. Currently, there are the following articles.
- GRADE guidelines: 1. Introduction-GRADE evidence profiles and summary of findings tables
- GRADE guidelines: 2. Framing the question and deciding on important outcomes
- GRADE guidelines: 3. Rating the quality of evidence
- GRADE guidelines: 4. Rating the quality of evidence-study limitations (risk of bias)
- GRADE guidelines: 5. Rating the quality of evidence-publication bias
- GRADE guidelines 6. Rating the quality of evidence-imprecision
- GRADE guidelines: 7. Rating the quality of evidence-inconsistency
- GRADE guidelines: 8. Rating the quality of evidence-indirectness
- GRADE guidelines: 9. Rating up the quality of evidence
- GRADE guidelines: 10. Considering resource use and rating the quality of economic evidence
- GRADE guidelines: 11. Making an overall rating of confidence in effect estimates for a single outcome and for all outcomes
- GRADE guidelines: 12. Preparing Summary of Findings tables-binary outcomes
- GRADE guidelines: 13. Preparing Summary of Findings tables and evidence profiles-continuous outcomes
- GRADE guidelines: 14. Going from evidence to recommendations: the significance and presentation of recommendations
- GRADE guidelines: 15. Going from evidence to recommendation-determinants of a recommendation's direction and strength
- GRADE Guidelines: 16. GRADE evidence to decision frameworks for tests in clinical practice and public health

- GRADE Guidelines: 19. Assessing the certainty of evidence in the importance of outcomes or values and preferences—Risk of bias and indirectness
- GRADE guidelines: 20. Assessing the certainty of evidence in the importance of outcomes or values and preferences—inconsistency, imprecision, and other domains
- GRADE guidelines: 21 part 1. Study design, risk of bias and indirectness in rating the certainty across a body of evidence for test accuracy
- GRADE guidelines: 21 part 2. Inconsistency, Imprecision, publication bias and other domains for rating the certainty of evidence for test accuracy and presenting it in evidence profiles and summary of findings tables.
- GRADE guidelines: 22. The GRADE approach for tests and strategies—from test accuracy to patient-important outcomes and recommendations
- GRADE guidelines 26: informative statements to communicate the findings of systematic reviews of interventions.
- GRADE guidelines 27: how to calculate absolute effects for time-to-event outcomes in summary of findings tables and Evidence Profiles.
