Help guide the research: Top 10 priorities for Health Professionals in caring for adults with rare musculoskeletal conditions
01 Jun 2017
Health professionals who see patients with rare skeletal diseases are being invited to take part in a survey to identify important unknowns in the diagnosis, treatment, management and delivery of care for adults with rare musculoskeletal diseases.
The disorders to be addressed are Fibrous Dysplasia/ McCune Albright Syndrome, Osteogenesis Imperfecta and X-Linked Hypophosphataemia.
The James Lind Alliance (JLA) Rare Musculoskeletal Diseases in Adulthood Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) are bringing together patients, carers and healthcare professionals, with a view to generating a top 10 list of questions that they want researchers to address. The priority questions will then be promoted to funders of research such as the National Institute of health Research (NICE).
Health professionals are asked to complete an online survey which is anticipated to close at the end of June. Responses will be collated, analysed and checked against existing evidence and from this a long list of questions will identified for prioritisation.
