Working groups update
The group is conducting a pilot study on the two templates under development: for summarising economic evaluation and for summarising prognostic studies. We have now also started the technical work to develop GINDER: G-I-N Data Extraction Resource. It is a tool for extracting and presenting data from various individual studies using a standardised template. This resource is the foundation for developing the evidence tables which group and summarise data on a defined question. If you wish to learn more about GINDER before its official launch in Seoul (GIN2011) please download the presentation available on the G-I-N website.
G-I-N has established a new working group that will focus on the development of performance measures during or after guideline development and their use in implementation cycles.
The group is chaired by Dr. Patrice Lindsay (Canada) and Dr. Fergus Macbeth (UK, G-I-N Board Member).
We are currently looking for G-I-N members who are interested and experienced in performance measurement and would like to participate. Membership would mean participation in email dialogues and conference calls to define and carry out the activities of this group, including developing and preparing an educational workshop for the 2012 G-I-N conference.
If you are interested in participating on this working group, please send a brief outline of your experience in this area to Patrice Lindsay (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 18th, 2011.
