Childhood Neurological Conditions Survey Part 2

08 December 2021

The British Paediatric Neurology Association and James Lind Alliance have launched a survey to define the Top 10 unanswered questions about the treatment of childhood neurological conditions, where there is uncertainty about the effectiveness of treatments. 

We contacted you last year to support us in our first Priority Setting Partnership survey. More can be found on our web page here

We have refined those questions and are now launching our second survey. From a list of 44 questions, please choose the top 10 most important to you. 

We would like to invite you to help us ensure that the survey and workshops we carry out following the outcomes involve those whose lives are affected by these conditions and the clinicians who treat them. Your previous support was invaluable.  

This partnership with the community is important - we know that this process is effective in finding research priorities. Recent priority areas have received millions of pounds of additional research funding. 

For more information about the Priority Setting Partnership please visit our website which sets out our objectives and who is involved in our Steering Group. Weblink here.  

Following the end of this survey, a priority-setting workshop is convened where participants, representing patients, carers and clinicians, discuss and finally arrive at a Top 10 list of research priorities. 

The eventual aim is to turn these priorities into funded research questions that have the potential to go on to improve the lives of children with Neurofibromatosis and other neurological conditions.
