About this resource
Guidelines for Guidelines is an online resource comprised of a collection of peer reviewed modules. Together they form a handbook that covers every aspect of the planning, development, review, implementation and updating of guidelines.
The modules that form the handbook are published as they become available, initially as a public consultation draft. For more information on the development of this resource please visit the Background page.
We are seeking feedback on the following modules that are currently available for public consultation:
- Organisation and budgeting
- Guideline Development Group
- Forming the questions
- Identifying the evidence
- Synthesising evidence
- Assessing risk of bias
- Assessing certainty of evidence
You are encouraged to make a submission on any or all of the draft modules through the online public consultation portal available at consultations.nhmrc.gov.au.
The consultation period has been extended and now closes on Wednesday 13 March 2019 at 5:00pm AEDT.
