Webinar - GRADE for Multiple-Intervention Comparisons in Evidence to Decision Framework

GRADE for Multiple-Intervention Comparisons in Evidence to Decision Framework

The last webinar hosted by Evidence Prime in 2022 will take place on the 12th of December at 11:00 - 12:00 EST (08:00 - 09:00 PST, 17:00 - 18:00 CET)!

Welcome to the last GRADEpro webinar hosted by Evidence Prime in 2022! It will take place on the 12th of December at 17:00 CET.

During the webinar, we will introduce the new Multiple-Intervention EtD Framework and demonstrate the GRADEpro module developed to support the process.

Until now, the Multi-Comparisons GRADEpro Tool allowed grouping together several pairwise comparisons and comparing them in terms of various Evidence Decision criteria. The newly developed approach allows framing the recommendation for multiple interventions within a single EtD framework. 

During the presentation, our guest speakers, Jessica Beltran, Carlos Canelo, and Pablo Alonso from Cochrane Iberoamerica, will present advancements in the method of comparing multiple interventions within the same framework. 

In the second part of the webinar, Bart Dietl will demonstrate specific functionalities in GRADEpro, which expand the currently available Evidence to Decision module with functions to facilitate decisions about multiple interventions.

Join us on Wednesday the 12th of December.
