JBI GRADE Workshop - June
ABOUT THE GRADE PROGRAMThe GRADE approach (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation) reflects ‘best practice’ in terms of clinical guideline development and has been endorsed by organizations across the globe.
The JBI Adelaide 1-day GRADE workshop is designed for systematic reviewers, guideline developers and others wanting to learn more about GRADE methodology, particularly the creation of Summary of Findings tables and Evidence Profiles.
The workshop includes information on the theory of GRADE along with hands-on activities.

Previous research highlights includes work that focussed on the maintenance and improvement of animal welfare and welfare detection methods. During his PhD he developed and critically appraised a Judgment-Bias Test (JBT) as an effective and practical method of welfare assessment. Being able to accurately measure welfare state is an important consideration for all animal use in research and teaching. With JBT testing in its relative infancy multiple confounding variables and factors often overlooked in the scientific literature were considered and compared as part of Timothy’s PhD thesis. This led to the recommendation that although the JBT can accurately identify animal affect, the associated burdens that accompany its use suggest it to be a poor practical method of welfare assessment.
