The Grades of Recommendation, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) methodology is based on a sequential assessment of the quality of evidence, followed by the benefits, risks, burden, and cost, leading to development and grading of a management recommendation.
The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) webcast, GRADE Methodology, will take place on Thursday, June 27, 2013, from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Central Time. Mark E. Nunnally, MD, FCCM, will provide information on the GRADE system engaged for the 2012 Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) guidelines. Topics to be covered include:
- Translating evidence into graded recommendations
- Identify features that reduce or increase the quality of evidence
- Appraising clinical data to determine the quality of evidence
- Integrating the quality of evidence for an intervention with its costs, and the balance between desirable and undesirable effects and values to determine the strength of a recommendation
This event, part of SCCM’s webcast series, provides strategies for successful application of the SSC guidelines. An initiative of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) and SCCM, the SSC aims to improve the management, diagnosis and treatment of sepsis in order to reduce its high mortality rate.
