Factors that influence the strength of the recommendation

Factor Comment
Balance between desirable and undesirable effects The larger the difference between the desirable and undesirable effects, the more likely a strong recommendation is warranted. The narrower the gradient, the more likely a weak recommendation is warranted
Quality of evidence The higher the quality of evidence, the more likely a strong recommendation is warranted
Values and preferences The more variability in values and preferences, or more uncertainty in values and preferences, the more likely a weak recommendation is warranted
Costs (resource allocation) The higher the costs of an intervention (that is, the more resources consumed), the less likely a strong recommendation is warranted
