Eczema research prioritisation exercise
1 June 2011
Researchers at the Academic Unit of Primary Health Care are working with colleagues at the Centre for Evidence Based Dermatology and the James Lind Alliance to help establish what the research priorities into the treatment of eczema should be.
The results of this exercise will determine current uncertainties in the treatment of eczema and will be used to guide the design of future eczema research projects and research funding opportunities.This study is part of a wider research programme called ‘Setting Priorities and Reducing Uncertainties for People with Skin Disease’ (SPRUSD), which is funded by the National Institute for Health Research.
Dr Matthew Ridd, GP and Lecturer at Bristol, said: "This is an excellent opportunity for patients and clinicians to have their say and shape the future direction of research into this common condition that can have a significant impact on sufferers and their families."
