Trustworthy guidelines need reliable methods. The state-of-the-art methods for the development of trustworthy guidelines in 2023 are based on the methodology developed by the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (short GRADE) working group (WG). GRADE WG started in the year 2000 as an informal collaboration of people with interest in addressing the shortcomings of grading systems in health care. GRADE WG is evolving and cultivating GRADE methodology as there are at the moment published 35 GRADE guidance papers and more than 60 GRADE-related publications developed by members of GRADE WG. The lecture will introduce some of the innovative methods developed in recent years within the guidelines field.
