The Melbourne GRADE Centre has trained more than 1000 systematic review authors and guideline developers in GRADE methods. We offer two standard online workshops as scheduled courses or on request. These course can be tailored for delivery to teams responsible for guideline development and as part of the induction for new guideline panel members.
Using the GRADE approach to summarise evidence for policy and practice is designed for systematic review authors, guideline developers and others wanting to apply GRADE when synthesising and interpreting evidence. This course is run over two half-days and covers GRADE methods for interpreting findings and assessing the certainty of evidence, preparing summary of findings tables and evidence profiles, and software to support the use of GRADE. In our interactive introductory workshops, we focus on the use of GRADE for interpreting effects of interventions.
Using the GRADE Evidence-to-Decision framework to make healthcare recommendations and decisions is designed for those developing guidance for clinical practice or policy. This half-day course introduces participants to the process of moving from evidence to recommendations using the GRADE framework in an interactive mock panel. It is suitable for guideline panel members and technical teams responsible for preparing Evidence-to-Decision frameworks. The course is offered as an optional half-day session to those attending the main GRADE workshop on summarising evidence, and can be delivered on request as a stand-alone for new guideline panels.
