The Process to Establish Recommendations and Clinical Practice Guidelines: Systematic Reviews, Meta-Analyses, Quality of the Evidence

November 7, 2023 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Centre for Scholarly Communication

What are clinical practice guidelines? How are recommendations established? This workshop will clarify what the different terms mean, and will illustrate the process that, starting from the identification of a need, the establishment of a working group, and a systematic synthesis of studies with an assessment of their quality, leads to the establishment of recommendations and, ultimately, to clinical practice guidelines.

This workshop will combine theoretical and practical components; you will learn to perform full-text screening and data extraction, meta-analysis, and assessment of the quality of the studies on Covidence, Comprehensive Meta-Analysis, and GRADEpro. At the end of this workshop, you will have an understanding of the different steps that lead to the development of clinical practice guidelines, and will be able to perform data extraction, meta-analysis, and assess the quality of the evidence.

Endorsed by the Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management and by the Centre for Health Behaviour Change.
