Guidelines Development Group
The objective of the Guidelines Development Group (GDG) is to develop evidence-based European Guidelines for breast cancer screening and diagnosis (the European Breast Guidelines) for screening and diagnosis.
The GDG will follow the GRADE approach in defining the healthcare question of interest (population of interest, interventions to be compared and patient-relevant outcomes- PICO), synthesizing the evidence and developing the recommendations for the Guidelines. This will be carried out within virtual working environments and in meetings organised every three months. The initial draft documents and the final versions before publication are subject of open calls for feedback launched online.
The members are also invited to contribute to the other ECIBC objectives, the Digital Mammography Training Template and the European Guidelines Platform covering all processes of care (from screening to end-of-life care).
An external contractor, CCIb –Iberoamerican Cochrane Centre, supports the GDG for their tasks from literature review to drafting of recommendations. RETELL supports ECIBC in communication related tasks, including reports, minutes and scientific publications.
