The James Lind Alliance (JLA) is a non-profit making initiative bringing patients, carers and clinicians together in JLA Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs). The JLA PSPs identify and prioritise unanswered questions or evidence uncertainties that they agree are the most important, so that health research funders are aware of the issues that matter most to the people who need to use the research in their everyday lives.

The JLA PSPs
PSPs work to identify which uncertainties really matter and where research would make the most difference.
The Top 10s
What are the top priorities for future research, agreed by patients, carers and health and care professionals working with PSPs?
Making a Difference
JLA PSPs have the potential to impact on the people who take part in them, the profile of the areas they set priorities in, and of course the research that is funded.

The NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre funded a research project to identify emerging themes or “overarching topics”, that span the Top 10 priorities published between 2016 and 2020 in the UK. The project was co-produced with patients and carers, health care professionals, public involvement specialists, health research funders and academics.
