Gliederung

Text

Background: The GRADE methodology facilitates a systematic and transparent process for evaluating and reporting quality of research evidence and for moving from evidence to recommendations in guideline development. It is equally important to facilitate authoring, maintenance and use of guidelines at the point of care.

Objectives: To develop a conceptual framework, methodology and technology for GRADE guidelines to allow efficient authoring, optimal presentation, customized processes for adaptation and dynamic updating, and tools for shared decision making.

Methods: The MAGIC research program includes a multidisciplinary team of guideline developers, clinicians, methodologists, interaction designers and programmers. MAGIC will create an electronic platform and a template for an authoring tool ultimately to be made available for all GL organizations through tight collaboration with DECIDE (http://www.decide-collaboration.eu/) and GRADE working group.

Results: 3 separate research projects have been initiated to address key objectives in the MAGIC program: SNAP IT develops and tests our electronic platform and template authoring tool by performing real life adaptation of an international antithrombotic guideline (ACCP AT9 with 600 recommendations) in Norway. PLUGGED IN develops prototypes for incorporation of guidelines into the EMR, linked to patient specific data. SHARE IT develops Decision aid cards linked to guideline recommendations to allow shared decision making in consultations.

Discussion: The MAGIC program may ultimately provide solutions to some current shortcomings in guideline development, dissemination and updating.

Implications for guideline developers: A common framework for authoring, updating and disseminating high quality guidelines should reduce resource demands and increase use of guidelines at the point of care.
