GLIA (Guideline Implementability Appraisal) Tool For Assessing Guidelines

Elements of the GLIA (Guideline Implementability Appraisal) tool for assessing guidelines:
  • Decidability: precisely under what circumstances to do something
  • Executability: exactly what to do under the defined circumstances
  • Effect on process of care: the degree of impact of the recommendation on the usual workforce
  • Presentation and formatting: the degree to which the recommendation is recognizable and succinct
  • Measureable outcomes: the degree to which the guidelines identify markers or end-points for tracking the effect of implementation of the recommendation
  • Validity: the degree to which the recommendation reflects the intent of the developer and the strength of the evidence
  • Novelty and innovation: the degree to which the recommendation proposes behaviour considered unconventional by clinicians or patients
  • Flexibility: the degree to which the recommendation permits interpretation and allows for alternatives in its execution
  • Computability: the ease with which the recommendation can be operationalized in an electronic information system (only relevant if electronic implementation is planned).
