This webinar presents the Confidence in the Evidence from Reviews of Qualitative research (GRADE-CERQual) approach, an innovative approach for assessing how much confidence to place in findings from qualitative evidence syntheses. (www.cerqual.org).
Qualitative evidence syntheses (or systematic reviews of qualitative studies) are increasingly used to bring together findings from individual qualitative studies. However, it has been difficult to use these findings to inform decisions and policies because methods to assess how much confidence to place in synthesised findings have been poorly developed. The GRADE-CERQual approach addresses this need.
The webinar, which is part of the Cochrane Learning Live series, is presented by Heather Munthe-Kaas, Simon Lewin and Claire Glenton, all coordinators of the GRADE-CERQual Project Group.
The webinar is edited into the following five parts:
- Introduction to GRADE-CERQual
- Overview of CERQual components
- Individual components and overall assessment
- Where to find guidance and how to get involved
- Questions and answers
