If you key the main study numbers into the GATE calculator, it automatically calculates the relevant outputs including: Page 6 documents the integration and application of evidence Step 4 and personal and clinical audit Step 5. It is often necessary to use the results from the GATE calculator to complete GATE-lite if the paper being appraised does not include all the relevant results.
The default display on the nomogram is generated from the numbers entered into the GATE calculator, however is also possible to modify the pre-test probability and the LRs if appropriate to illustrate the impact of applying the test in different populations.
The second page of this GATE-lite after the glossary is a LR nomogram that really helps users to make sense of the results from diagnostic studies. The GATE-lite for intervention studies can also be used for risk factor and prognostic studies.
Evidence from Case-Control Studies Case-control studies are used to investigate questions about interventions, risk factors and prognosis. However they are sufficiently different from other study designs to warrant a separate CAT and calculator.1 Chapter 4 – Critical appraisal of qualitative research This chapter should be cited as: Hannes K.
