A systematic map of studies of patients' and clinicians' research priorities

The potential for patient and public involvement in clinical research is increasingly recognised, the rationale being that it leads to research that meets the needs of patients and the public, is more reliable and more likely to be put into practice. In order to learn from earlier experiences of such involvement, the James Lind Alliance (JLA) set out to assemble a bibliography of studies about patients’ and clinicians’ research priorities studies. In 2008 the JLA then commissioned research, reported here, to explore this literature in more detail, and to reflect on the work in the JLA in relation to this literature.
