What is GRADE-CERQual?
GRADE-CERQual is an approach for assessing how much confidence to place in the findings of a qualitative evidence synthesis. The overall assessment of confidence (high, moderate, low, very low) is made on the basis of an assessment of four components: methodological limitations, coherence, adequacy, and relevance.
