23 James Lind Alliance The James Lind Alliance is a non-profit making initiative, being developed under the direction of a broadly-based Strategy and Development Group. Its Secretariat is funded by the Medical Research Council & the Department of HealthStrategy and Development GroupMedical Research CouncilDepartment of Health Aims to identify the most important gaps in knowledge about the effects of treatments Purpose to bring patients and clinicians together in working partnerships to identify and prioritize unanswered questions that they agree are most important

24 JLA & Asthma At a Medicine and Me meeting on asthma at the Royal Society of Medicine in August 2004, Professor Stephen Holgate (British Thoracic Society) and Philippa Major (Asthma UK) expressed enthusiasm to Dr John Scadding (Co-convener of the James Lind Alliance) about establishing a James Lind Alliance (JLA) Working Partnership in Asthma.

29 DUETs: Aim Identify and publish uncertainties reflected in patients and clinicians questions about the effect of treatment which cannot be answered by referring to up-to-date reviews of existing research evidence Inform priorities for new research, particularly those developed under aegis of James Lind Alliance

30 DUETs Developed and extended using the infrastructure of the specialist libraries of the national library for health (www.library.nhs.uk)www.library.nhs.uk Supported by team funded by MRC & DoH

31 DUETs A collection of known uncertainties –known to have either no systematic review or an up to date systematic review shows that the answer is not available from research
