Pre-Conference Course 1

Streamlining Guideline Development: Creating an Efficient Systematic Process to Meet Time and Resource Constraints

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM (includes travel time to ECRI)

Location: ECRI Institute Headquarters

In an era of raised standards for guidelines and systematic reviews, limited resources can pose a challenge to clinical practice guideline development. This course aims to teach guideline developers and systematic reviewers about methods to increase efficiency in developing and maintaining a systematic process under constrained time and resources. Specific objectives include learning more efficient methods for scoping and key question development, systematic methods of rapid review, methods for adaptation of existing guidelines, and methods for crafting recommendations suitable for use in clinical decision support (CDS) tools for personalizing recommendations.

Pre-Conference Course 2

Close Encounters of a Third Kind?

Involving Patients and Consumers in Guideline Development: A Joint Workshop of G-I-N PUBLIC and CUE – Consumers United for Evidence Based Health Care

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: University of Pennsylvania Campus

Involving patients and/or consumers is considered a quality criterion for guideline development: the IOM or G-I-N standards as well as AGREE II ask for patient involvement. But for many guideline developers, successful involvement still remains a challenge: Where to find patients and/or consumers? How to train them? How to deal with conflicts of interest? This workshop aims at providing practical support and sharing international experience to facilitate successful patient or consumer involvement for guideline developers.

Pre-Conference Course 3

Individualising Guidelines (Development, Dissemination and Application) in Resource Constrained Settings: Challenges and Opportunities

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: University of Pennsylvania Campus

Developed health-care systems use robust evidence-based processes for developing, disseminating and implementing clinical guidelines; whereas the drivers are often different in developing and/or resource constrained health-care systems. Many of the latter systems therefore directly adopt existing guidelines, or adapt them to suit the local context, or (in many cases) don’t use any guidelines at all. In the current era with a focus of personalised healthcare delivery, such systems are poorly oriented to face a new dimension of complexity viz individualising guidelines (in terms of development, dissemination and application).

Pre-Conference Course 4

GRADE and Guideline Development

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Location: University of Pennsylvania Campus

This workshop is an interactive, hands-on opportunity to use GRADE in guideline development. The large group presentations will be interactive with audience participation. The small groups will be tailored to the experiences of the group, e.g. some groups may focus on issues in guideline development, while other groups may focus on GRADE methodology. Participants should bring laptops or plan to share with others.
