Developing and implementing the GRADE-CERQual approach: Confidence in the Evidence from Reviews of Qualitative ResearchThe GRADE-CERQual approach provides a transparent method for assessing the confidence of evidence from reviews of qualitative research, and indicating this confidence to end users, such as guideline panels or decision makers. CERQual uses a similar approach conceptually to other GRADE tools, but is intended for findings from systematic reviews of qualitative evidence. Carlsen is participating in the GRADE-CERQual project group. Website: https://www.cerqual.org/
