James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnerships

JLA: Elbow Conditions

The Elbow Priority Setting Partnership was established in 2019 to identify and prioritise the unanswered questions about elective surgical and nonsurgical treatment for elbow conditions from patient, carer and clinical perspectives. The PSP covered common conditions that affect the elbow such as elbow osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis, tendonitis like tennis elbow and golfers elbow, biceps or triceps tendonitis, elbow stiffness, ulnar nerve problems, chronic elbow instability, biceps tendon rupture, congenital elbow conditions or acute elbow fractures or dislocations.

The Elbow Conditions PSP Top 10 was published in December 2021.

JLA: Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries

Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries (TBPI) are life changing and can lead to permanent changes in function of the arm and hand. The severity of symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, and between different affected nerves and joints. Symptoms can be short-term, lasting a few months, whereas others can experience continuous and severe problems for the rest of their lives. Symptoms can include pain, numbness, stiffness, muscle weakness and reduced movement in the arm and hand. The PSP will identify unanswered questions about problems relating to TBPI and will address research needs for any stage of the disease or treatment.

The PSP is being led by University College London and Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
