ROBINS-I assessment integration - 21 December 2018

POSTED BY POSTED IN New Features | No Comments

ROBINS-I (Risk Of Bias In Non-randomized Studies – of Interventions) is a tool used to assess a risk of bias in non-randomized studies of interventions.

 

 

Outcomes in GRADEpro based on observational studies have now possibility to enable ROBINS-I assessment by clicking the checkbox, as presented on the illustration above. This will change the certainty of evidence calculation in evidence table and options available in risk of bias assessment to the one used in ROBINS-I method.

GRADE method calculates certainty of evidence in observational studies, starting from LOW (Which represents lack of certainty in non-randomized studies) certainty and lowering to VERY LOW with any other serious and very serious risk of bias/inconsistency/indirectness/imprecision or publication bias assessment.

ROBINS-I option modifies this method. Certainty of evidence of non-randomized studies starts from HIGH and is lowered by 1 level (HIGH/MODERATE/LOW/VERY LOW) each time risk of bias assessment is lowered.

Example: Outcome based on non-randomized studies with “very serious” risk of bias and “serious inconsistency” will be assessed as “VERY LOW” certainty of evidence.

 

Starting from HIGH

Lowered 2 levels to LOW for “very serious” Risk of Bias

Lowered 1 level to VERY LOW for “serious” inconsistency of data

I have a problem with this functionality. Where can I ask for help?

How to use the new GRADEpro – RevMan 5 integration - 14 October 2018

POSTED BY POSTED IN GRADEpro, New Features | No Comments

The new GRADEpro – RevMan 5 deep integration brings our users a completely new experience regarding the use of both tools together in one system. In this short post we would like to present the highlights of this new functionality, and to show how to maximise the benefits of the integration:

1. Direct review import

Connected accounts make it possible to share data between systems. After a GRADEpro user connects their Cochrane (Archie) account, new import options will appear. Wherever “import from Revman 5” is available, there will now appear an additional option: importing directly from the Archie server.

How to connect your Archie and GRADEpro accounts? - 14 October 2018

POSTED BY POSTED IN GRADEpro, New Features | No Comments

With the recent GRADEpro update it is now possible to connect your (Cochrane) Archie account to the GRADEpro system and synchronize data between the RevMan 5 and GRADEpro GDT software. You can find general information about this new integration in the following article GRADEpro & RevMan 5″ and more details about possible use cases of this new function the article How to use the new GRADEpro – RevMan 5 integration”.
