JLA seeks anaesthetists’ views for blood transfusion research

The James Lind Alliance (JLA) has launched a national survey providing anyone affected by blood transfusion and blood donation, personally or professionally, the chance to prioritise research questions about these services.

An online survey in the spring of 2016 identified approximately 800 uncertainties about blood donation and the use of blood transfusion. These uncertainties, presented as potential research questions were reviewed and categorised, and the existing evidence checked to see whether the answers to any of the questions were already known.

JLA is now at the second survey stage whereby an online voting process seeks to establish the top 10 research priorities in the field of blood donation and blood transfusion.

The survey is open to all healthcare professionals. The College would like to encourage fellows and members to complete the survey by 11 January 2018. Please share this survey with fellow colleagues and encourage them to participate.

Effective research can improve care and treatment, therefore making a real difference to patient’s lives.
