The TIDieR checklist and guide should improve the reporting of interventions and make it easier for authors to structure accounts of their interventions, reviewers and editors to assess the descriptions, and readers to use the information. Expand
GRADE guidelines: 1. Introduction-GRADE evidence profiles and summary of findings tables.
TLDR
The GRADE process begins with asking an explicit question, including specification of all important outcomes, and provides explicit criteria for rating the quality of evidence that include study design, risk of bias, imprecision, inconsistency, indirectness, and magnitude of effect. Expand
Intensive blood glucose control and vascular outcomes in patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
A strategy of intensive glucose control, involving gliclazide (modified release) and other drugs as required, that lowered the glycated hemoglobin value to 6.5% yielded a 10% relative reduction in the combined outcome of major macrovascular and microvascular events, primarily as a consequence of a 21%relative reduction in nephropathy.

Towards complete and accurate reporting of studies of diagnostic accuracy: the STARD initiative.
TLDR
If medical journals adopt the STARD checklist and flow diagram, the quality of reporting of studies of diagnostic accuracy should improve to the advantage of clinicians, researchers, reviewers, journals, and the public. Expand
Sicily statement on evidence-based practice
TLDR
All health care professionals need to understand the principles of EBP, recognise EBP in action, implement evidence-based policies, and have a critical attitude to their own practice and to evidence. Expand

TLDR
This explanatory document aims to facilitate the use, understanding, and dissemination of the checklist and contains a clarification of the meaning, rationale, and optimal use of each item on the checklist. Expand
Avoidable waste in the production and reporting of research evidence
