GRADE is a valuable framework assisting systematic review authors in assessing the certainty of the evidence. Five specific domains (Risk of Bias, Publication Bias, Imprecision, Inconsistency, Indirectness) are incorporated in the GRADE approach. Select article titles provided and accompanied by video links for summary of findings table implementation related to each domain:
