Programme

The 2012 G-I-N Conference Proceedings, containing 320 abstracts from more than 40 countries , are available online via the portal German Medical Science: http://www.egms.de/dynamic/en/meetings/gin2012/index.htm.

G-I-N is adopting a green policy this year and therefore the conference proceedings will only be available online.

Note: Abstract numbers have been modified to fit the programme. We encourage you to look for your abstract in the conference proceedings to find out your new abstract number, especially if you are presenting a poster.

The conference programme is also available at http://gin2012.org/programme.html (this will be available for download in advance of the conference also). Only a short version of the programme will be provided to you at the conference. WiFi will be available at the venue and therefore, if you have a laptop or iPad, you will be able to view these documents while at the conference.

We would encourage presenters to check that the presentation details noted on the conference programme are correct.

      Post-conference

      Appraising and Using Non-RCT Evidence in Clinical Guideline Production.

      25 August 2012 at 13.30 - 16.00

      Facilitators: Teun Zuiderent-Jerak and Frode Forland

      The rise of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) has been of crucial importance for the development of Clinical Practice Guidelines. But despite the nuanced ideas within EBM about the importance for using different types of knowledge for different clinical questions, methodology development for guidelines has increasingly focused on appraising and including RCTs and systematic reviews of them. There are few methods in the present guideline development community that focus on assessing and including different types of knowledge. This imbalance poses problems for the usability of guidelines and marginalizes evidence that may in fact be ‘best’ for a particular issue.

      In this workshop we address the question about what methods are available or lacking for weighing and including different types of knowledge, what are the experiences with these methods and how are they able to produce alternative evidence hierarchies? In this workshop we will invite people to share experiences and to discuss in some depth the challenges and developments that are needed to qualify and integrate other types of knowledge in guidelines production.

      The workshop is sponsored by G-I-N, so there is no charge to participating, and lunch is provided at the start of the workshop, and is offered by the Dutch Council for Quality of Healthcare.
