Discover the programme: foreseen plenary sessions and knowledgeable speakers
International experts in fields relevant to guidelines will be presenting in five plenary sessions. The Scientific Committee has been busy these past months working on the plenary sessions and we would like to give a short preview.
- 10 years of G-I-N: Lessons learned and future vision.
The opening plenary will be dedicated to the Network itself with an interactive podium discussion where past and present G-I-N Chairs and vice-chairs are invited to take part.
- One guideline methodology for all?
Lectures will provide an overview of the DECIDE project, new developments in GRADE and challenges in developing health systems recommendations.
- Do guidelines make a difference?
This session will address prerequisites and results starting with the presentation of the G-I-N position paper on standards in guidelines. In addition, we look forward to hearing about the effects of guidelines on quality of care and patient outcomes from Jeremy Grimshaw (University of Ottawa, Canadian Cochrane Network and Centre). Finally, we look forward to being provided with insights into performance measures methodology presented by Joachim Szecsenyi (AQUA-Institute for Applied Quality Improvement and Research in Health Care, Goettingen, Germany).
- Patient involvement in guideline development
This topic will include a systematic review on the topic patient involvement methodology, presentation of the toolkit developed by G-I-N PUBLIC and the patient perspective: experience being a patient representative in a guideline development group.
- Knowledge Translation 2020
The closing plenary will look into the future addressing technical innovations, the concept of shared decision-making, patient decision aids and behavioural aspects of learning. We really look forward to hearing Sir Iain Chalmers in the closing lecture on barriers to implementation: research reporting bias and biased research agenda setting.
Please note that this program may still evolve as the Scientific Committee will further pursue its aim to create an exciting program looking for more enthusiastic and knowledgeable speakers.
More information will be provided during the coming months via the conference website, email and enGINe.
