ECRI Institute helps clinical guideline developers


ECRI Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to healthcare improvement, has set out to help the experts involved in developing or implementing clinical guidelines.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report that raised the bar for clinical guidelines, with the aim of making them more trustworthy and easier to use.

On April 8, 2015, they will share their expertise in ECRI Institute’s free educational webinar, “Creating Evidence-based Guidelines in 2015.”

The CME-eligible webinar will offer strategies to help developers meet the IOM's Standards for Developing Trustworthy Clinical Practice Guidelines. During the 90-minute program, experts from ECRI Institute’s Health Technology Assessment service will  questions on subjects such as how the recent changes by the Institute of Medicine affect guideline development; how teams should approach systematic reviews; and how to assess the evidence to build trustworthy guidelines.

Speakers include Vivian Coates, MBA, vice president, ECRI Institute; James Reston, PhD, MPH, associate director, health technology assessment, ECRI Institute and Stacey Uhl, MSS, senior research analyst, health technology assessment, ECRI Institute.

This webinar is for physicians, nurses, methodologists, research librarians, and other professionals who work in the areas of clinical guideline development, comparative effectiveness research, coverage and policy development, medical affairs, outcomes research, and patient-reported outcomes research.
