Scoliosis Priority Setting Partnership

Scoliosis Priority Setting Partnership

Update July 2017


Our second survey has now finished and the James Lind Alliance are collating the results. They aim to meet by the end of the year to analyse the results and come up with the final TOP TEN research priorities for scoliosis.


Many thanks for your help so far.



Help to set priorities for scoliosis research.

Following our first survey, which closed in October 2016, we have identified a list of questions that have not yet been answered by research.

This is based on suggestions made by over 700 people with scoliosis, their relatives and carers, and healthcare professionals.

We now need your help to prioritise the questions in this list.

We want to hear from:

  • people of any age with any form of scoliosis
  • friends, relatives and carers of people with scoliosis
  • healthcare professionals working with people with scoliosis
  • organisations and charities working with people with scoliosis

Please tell us which of the questions you want research to answer. You do not need to know about research – just tell us what is important to you based on your own experience.    

The top 25 questions will be taken to a workshop in July 2017 where the final top ten will be agreed.
