Week 3 critical appraisal of practice guidelines

  

While there are several tools to critically appraise practice guidelines, the most comprehensively validated appraisal tool is the AGREE II Instrument. The AGREE II Instrument can be used by individual practitioners to critically appraise health guidelines and by decision makers to inform policy decisions. The purpose of the AGREE II Instrument is to provide a framework to:

  1. Assess      the quality of guidelines.
  2. Provide      a methodological strategy for the development of guidelines.
  3. Inform      what information and how the information ought to be reported in      guidelines.

Overall assessment includes rating the overall quality of the guideline and whether the guideline would be recommended for use in practice.
 

Items are rated on a 7-point scale from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 7 (Strongly Agree). A score of 1 is given when there is no information on that item or if it is poorly reported. A score of 7 is given if the quality of reporting is excellent and when full criteria have been met (Score explanations found in the AGREE II-GRS Instrument).
 

A quality score is calculated for each of the six domains, which are independently scored. Domain scores are calculated by summing up all the scores of the items in the domain and by scaling the total as a percentage of the maximum possible score for that specific domain.

For this assignment, you will choose a guideline and assess the overall quality and whether the guideline would be recommended for use in practice.
