Please join us at the following CERQual workshops in Seoul:
Assessing how much confidence to place in findings from qualitative evidence syntheses: a new version of the GRADE-CERQual approach
This workshop will introduce you to the latest version of the GRADE Confidence of the Evidence from Reviews of Qualitative research (CERQual) approach. Participants will be able to apply the most recent version of CERQual to qualitative evidence synthesis findings and discuss issues arising from this.
Date and location: Sunday 23 October 2016 from 13:30 to 17:00 in the Crane room
Dissemination bias in qualitative research: what is it and how can it be assessed?
This workshop will discuss how dissemination bias in qualitative research can be conceptualised and how to assess the impacts of dissemination bias on findings from qualitative evidence syntheses. Findings will be presented from a recent global survey on the extent of, and possible reasons for, dissemination bias in qualitative research. This will be followed by small group and plenary discussions on the likely impacts of dissemination bias on qualitative evidence synthesis findings and GRADE-CERQual assessments of confidence in the evidence

Assessing confidence in evidence of effectiveness and qualitative evidence: the GRADE effectiveness and GRADE-CERQual approaches.
Assessing the quality of the body of evidence using a tool such as the GRADE approach, and justifying these assessments, is mandatory within the Cochrane Methodological Expectations of Cochrane Intervention Reviews (MECIR) standards. This workshop for editors, staff and review authors of Cochrane Review Groups aims to deepen participants’ understanding of the GRADE approach and to provide practical experience of applying the approach to two different streams of evidence: evidence from systematic reviews of the effectiveness of interventions and evidence from systematic reviews of qualitative evidence (also called qualitative evidence syntheses).
The workshop is limited to 60 participants. Acceptance is on a first come, first served basis. There is no charge for this training event. For information and registration here
