GRADE (Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation)
The GRADE approach describes the process of rating the quality of the best available evidence and developing health care recommendations developed by the international GRADE Working Group (www.gradeworkinggroup.org). Their aim was to develop a common, transparent and sensible approach to grading the quality of evidence and strength of recommendations in health care. Currently more and more organizations are supporting and implementing this approach.
The course is organized by Cebam in collaboration with Cochrane Belgium, Domus Medica and CEBaP.
