Guidelines For Reporting Reliability And Agreement Studies (Grras)

Results: Fifteen issues to be addressed when reliability and compliance are reported are proposed. The numbers correspond to the titles usually used in publications. Study design and configuration: Eight experts in insurance and agreement studies have developed reporting guidelines. Objective: The results of reliability and compliance studies are intended to provide information on the amount of error inherent in any diagnosis, score or measurement. The degree of reliability and consistency between users of scales, instruments or classifications is largely unknown. It is therefore necessary to rigorously carry out assurance and compliance studies on interraters and intraraters. Information on sampling, study design and statistical analysis is often incomplete. Due to insufficient reporting, interpretation and synthesis of study results is often difficult. There are no generally accepted criteria, standards or guidelines for the reliability and compliance of reports in the areas of health and health. The objective was to develop guidelines for safety studies and reporting agreement.

Conclusion: The proposed guidelines aim to improve the quality of reporting. . This article was originally published in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology 2011: 64 (96-106). The paper is again published with permission from the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology. .
