Mesothelioma Priority Setting Partnership
The Mesothelioma Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) brought together people with mesothelioma, their families, carers and the healthcare professionals who treat them to help set priorities for mesothelioma research.
It gave them a chance to say what mesothelioma research would make a difference to them, so that researchers would know what the most important questions around Mesothelioma were.
“Mesothelioma research has been identified as an important area. I’m delighted that the NIHR can support the James Lind Alliance in forming a Priority Setting Partnership to bring together patients, carers and clinicians in this area. The Priority Setting Partnership process is a tried and tested way for them all to contribute equally to decisions about what the important questions are for Mesothelioma research to address.”
