Including practical issues and patient perspectives in Rapid Recommendations
Treatment burden is an often ignored but crucial element in guidelines and clinical decision making and could be appraised in a broader framework of “practical issues” related to how a treatment or test will affect a patient’s daily life. Expand

Producing an evidence‐based treatment information website in partnership with people affected by multiple sclerosis
The objective was to develop online consumer summaries of MS treatment evidence (derived from Cochrane Reviews) that respond to identified treatment information needs of people affected by MS. Expand
A framework for practical issues was developed to inform shared decision-making tools and clinical guidelines.
Adding practical issues systematically to evidence summaries is feasible and can inform guidelines and tools for shared decision making and can improve patient-centered care. Expand
The next frontier in critical care guidelines: rapid and trustworthy recommendations
The Canadian Critical Care Society and the Scandinavian Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (SSAI) have taken a leap forward in guideline creation by developing a rapid clinical practice guideline based on the WikiRecs process, based on systematic reviews using the GRADE approach. Expand
Developing and applying a 'living guidelines' approach to WHO recommendations on maternal and perinatal health
How WHO developed and applied a ‘living guidelines’ approach to its maternal and perinatal health recommendations is described, based on a systematic and continuous process of prioritisation and updating. Expand

To develop an evidence‐based recommendation concerning the use of α‐blockers for uncomplicated ureteric stones based on an up‐to‐date Cochrane review, as the role of medical expulsive therapy forExpand


Making evidence based medicine work for individual patients
It is argued that new models of evidence synthesis and shared decision making are needed to accelerate a move from guideline driven care to individualised care. Expand

GRADE Evidence to Decision (EtD) frameworks: a systematic and transparent approach to making well informed healthcare choices. 2: Clinical practice guidelines
Clinicians regularly face situations with two or more alternative actions, each of which often has different advantages and disadvantages, including differences in effectiveness, adverse effects, costs and other factors. Expand
Decision aids that really promote shared decision making: the pace quickens
A new electronic model that holds promise of being more useful for clinicians and patients to use together at the point of care is described. Expand
GRADE: an emerging consensus on rating quality of evidence and strength of recommendations
The advantages of the GRADE system are explored, which is increasingly being adopted by organisations worldwide and which is often praised for its high level of consistency. Expand
GRADE Evidence to Decision (EtD) frameworks: a systematic and transparent approach to making well informed healthcare choices. 1: Introduction
Decision-making processes and the factors (criteria) that decision makers should consider vary for different types of decisions, including clinical recommendations, coverage decisions, and health system or public health recommendations or decisions. Expand
[GRADE Evidence to Decision (EtD) frameworks: a systematic and transparent approach to making well informed healthcare choices. 2: Clinical practice guidelines].
The general structure of the EtD framework for clinical recommendations is similar to EtD frameworks for other types of recommendations and decisions, and includes formulation of the question, an assessment of the different criteria, and conclusions. Expand
Prognosis after surgical replacement with a bioprosthetic aortic valve in patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis: systematic review of observational studies
Patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis undergoing SAVR with a bioprosthetic valve can expect only slightly lower survival than those without aorta stenosis, and a low incidence of stroke and, up to 10 years, of structural valve deterioration. Expand
Patient values and preferences on transcatheter or surgical aortic valve replacement therapy for aortic stenosis: a systematic review
Current evidence on patient values and preferences of adults with aortic stenosis is very limited, and no studies have enrolled patients deciding between TAVI and SAVR, highlighting the importance of well-informed and shared decision-making with patients facing this decision. Expand
Transcatheter versus surgical aortic valve replacement in patients with severe aortic stenosis at low and intermediate risk: systematic review and meta-analysis
Many patients, particularly those who have a shorter life expectancy or place a lower value on the risk of long term valve degeneration, are likely to perceive net benefit with transfemoral TAVI versus SAVR. Expand
