About GRADEpro

GRADEpro has been updated for use by Cochrane review authors to create Summary of Findings Tables and can be used as a browser based tool compatible with all software platforms. Best results are obtained in modern browsers such as Google Chrome or Safari. The downloadable software version of GRADEpro is still available, but will no longer be updated.

GRADEpro is the official software of the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) Working Group. The GRADE Working Group began as an informal collaboration in 2000. The aim of the Group is to develop a common, transparent and sensible approach to grading quality of evidence and strength of recommendations for guideline development. This approach is used by organisations around the world. GRADEpro was developed by the GRADE Working Group to facilitate the process of presenting and grading evidence transparently.

The development of the GRADEprofiler (GRADEpro) was supported by the DECIDE project European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement Nr. 258583 (DECIDE project), the European Commission Marie Curie Reintegration grant EU IGR42192 to Holger Schünemann and the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services. GRADEpro is now programmed and maintained technically by Evidence Prime (www.evidenceprime.com).
