Survey Purpose

The Guidelines International Network, in partnership with the McMaster University, will offer certification and credentialing courses in guideline development, including planning, implementation, evaluation and updating. The goal is to improve practice guideline quality by training guideline panel members, or development teams, from around the world in a standardized and transparent fashion, with a focus on implementing modern, evidence-based guideline research.

We kindly ask that you participate in this anonymous survey to assist in tailoring our program to the needs of guideline panel members, development teams, and organizations.

For the purposes of this survey, a guideline development panel will also refer to guideline development groups and guideline development teams. A panel member will refer to anyone who is a full member, can vote on recommendations, and does not fulfill functions such as chairing the group or being a methodologist.
