Welcome to the AGREE A3 Research Project

We would like to thank you once again for volunteering to participate in our research project. The focus of our study is the AGREE II; the new standard for the development, reporting and evaluation of clinical practice guidelines. Your feedback will be essential to inform us of how to promote the use of AGREE II.

Your participation is completely voluntary.

We would like to remind you that your participation in this study is completely voluntary. You may decline to answer any or all questions and you are free to withdraw at any time during the course of this study. We will provide you with a unique identifier code to ensure the confidentiality of your responses and all submitted data is password protected. This study has received ethics approval from the Hamilton Health Sciences/McMaster University Faculty of Health Sciences Research Ethics Board (REB #09-398).

Your participation in this study should take no longer than 2 hours to complete.

Participation in the study involves reading and assessing a practice guideline using the AGREE II and completing a series of questions about the process. This task should take no longer than 2 hours and you do not need to be a clinical expert on the topic of the practice guideline you receive. Although we recommend that you complete the process in one sitting, please note that you may save your entries and return to complete your process at a later time.

Are you ready to begin?

If you agree to participate and wish to continue to begin the study, please enter your username and password (provided in the email sent to you from the AGREE A3 Scientific Office) and click “login”. Thank you!
