James Lind Alliance – Priority Setting Partnerships
The James Lind Alliance (JLA) is a non-profit making initiative which was established in 2004. Patients, carers and clinicians come together in Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs) to identify and prioritise the Top 10 uncertainties, or ‘unanswered questions’, about the effects of treatments that they agree are most important.
The aim of this is to help ensure that those who fund health research are aware of what matters to both patients and clinicians.
The PSPs that relate to trauma and orthopaedics are:
- Broken Bones in Older People – Musculoskeletal Injury: fragility fracture of the lower limb and pelvis
With guidance from our specialist societies, we will continue to liaise with the JLA regarding themes for potential research questions and will support the PSPs for the foreseeable future.
