New KT case study: Working with national guideline developers to help them develop and adapt evidence-based guidelines

Working with national guideline developers to help them develop and adapt evidence-based guidelines

We recognize the work of Cochrane Nigeria who are supporting national guideline development groups in using Cochrane evidence to develop evidence-based guidelines and to be able to adapt existing guidelines to the Nigerian context. Cochrane Nigeria has been developing skills in how to appraise and adapt existing guidelines using the AGREE II tool, and how to use evidence, including Cochrane evidence, in the guideline development process.

Cochrane Nigeria has provided a summary of their work and offered some tips for other Cochrane Groups looking to run similar projects.

For more help and guidance about growing capacity of the users of Cochrane evidence, or if you have examples of you Knowledge Translation work that you would like to share, please contact Karen Head (khead@cochrane.org).
