The good, the bad and the ugly of clinical guidelines

Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting AbstractResearchpeer-review


Aim and intended outcome/Educational objectives:
This interactive eWorkshop will enable participants to spot a dodgy clinical guideline, understand the guideline writing process from an insider’s perspective and getto grips with GRADE.
All learners should be given the opportunity to do rather than listen. (Strong recommendation for, low certainty). This workshop will use virtual collaboration tools to give you a chance to be in the driving seat of guideline development.
In part 1, we will expose the underbelly of a clinical guideline together and explore how guidelines can drive low value care. In part 2, hear from the GP who was charged with leading the last edition of the RACGP Red Book and the controversial new Smoking Cessation guide. Have a go at being part of an
Expert Advisory Group to grapple with the ins and outs of a guideline decision. In part 3, discover how guidelines make the GRADE by assigning the strength and certainty of an evidence-based recommendation.
Intended audience:
This workshop is for the inquisitive and those that would like to see research translated into patient outcomes. No clinical experience needed. Our
recommendation is that a group size of less than 20 will optimise learning and engagement.
(Conditional recommendation for, v low certainty).
