About AID Knowledge
Appraising and Including Different Knowledge in Guideline Development
Working Group Aim
To facilitate sharing and consolidating experiences with ongoing initiatives in communities of practice, as well as to identify the most pressing needs for new initiatives. This will lead to capacity building and fostering collaboration among guideline developers worldwide by:
- Identifying methods and promising initiatives for appraising and including a wider range of knowledge sources in guidelines;
- Sharing experiences with such methods and their application in practice;
- Identifying areas / questions for which methods are wanting.
The Working Group is divided into two sub-groups focusing on:
Types of knowledge production
- Quality and safety improvement knowledge (including assessing the quality of organisational research on complex intervention)
- Consensus and other methods for robust inclusion of expert opinion
