Don't use James Lind Alliance Priority Setting as a tick box exercise

  Created on Thursday, 12 Sep 2019. Posted in Priorities

Citing the James Lind Alliance Priority Setting (JLA PS) as a reason why the research is important is a good way to justify your research question, however you need to do more that just say that JLA identified it as a priority!

In one or two sentences explain how the JLA PS resulted in the research question being posed. Provide numbers of people involved in the process of setting the priority, where it ranked and what the reasons were for setting it as a priority. Most importantly remember to say what difference answering that uncertainty will make to the NHS and patients.
