Hopefully you already know about the James Lind Alliance 1–4. If not have a look at the St.Emlyn’s blogs and podcasts, but in brief the Royal College of Emergency Medicine is working with the JLA to set the most important research priorities in emergency medicine. The process has been running since the middle of last year and after a lot of work led by Professor Jason Smith and Richard Morley we are down to the last 60 questions.
We need professionals and the public to follow this link to a survey that will finalise a list of questions that will then go through to a final round in January where the top 10 research priorities will be set.
We need everyone to help complete the survey, both patients and professionals.
Past processes have shown that if the JLA recommends a research priority then it significantly increases the likelihood of getting the projects funded. In other words this really matters and could shape UK EM research for the next decade.
So please. Have a look and complete the survey today.
On behalf of the JLA steering group.
