We are collaborating in the development of a GRADE-based decision aid prototype to be used at the point of care using electronic devices (e.g. tablets or laptops). For guideline developers this will mean the possibility to semi-automatically produce interactive evidence summaries when needed for conditional recommendations that aim to enhance conversations between clinicians and patients. This work has been developed by the MAGIC initiative (http://magicproject.org/) in partnership with DECIDE.
