Event description
The objective of this workshop is to introduce the GRADE-CERQual (Confidence in the Evidence from Reviews of Qualitative research) approach

About this Event

Date: 18th, 19th, 22nd & 23rd March 2021

Time: 13.00 - 15.00 each day

Places: Individuals who are resident in Ireland & Northern Ireland

Background

Systematic reviews of qualitative studies (qualitative evidence syntheses) are increasingly used to bring together findings from qualitative studies. In order to use synthesised findings to inform decisions we need methods to assess how much confidence to place in these findings. The GRADE-CERQual approach addresses this need.

Learning outcomes

In this course participants will be enabled to:

  • To gain a broad understanding of the role that qualitative evidence synthesis can play in evidence-informed decision making
  • To gain a broad understanding of the different stages of a qualitative evidence synthesis
  • To gain a broad understanding of the GRADE-CERQual approach
  • To understand the role of the ‘relevance’ component in a GRADE-CERQual assessment and to be able to apply this component to a finding from a qualitative evidence synthesis
  • To understand the role of the ‘methodological limitations’ component in a GRADE-CERQual assessment and to be able to apply this component to a finding from a qualitative evidence synthesis
  • To understand the role of the ‘coherence’ component in a GRADE-CERQual assessment and to be able to apply this component to a finding from a qualitative evidence synthesisTo understand the role of the ‘adequacy’ component in a GRADE-CERQual assessment and to be able to apply this component to a finding from a qualitative evidence synthesis
  • To understand how to make an overall assessment of confidence for a finding from a qualitative evidence synthesis and how to create a GRADE-CERQual Summary of Qualitative

Teaching strategies

During each day of the workshop, facilitators will give a short introduction on the topic of the day. Workshop participants will then carry out an exercise related to this topic, followed by a session where the topic and exercise are discussed.
