Ensuring that uncertainties are uncertainties
It is important to ensure that the identified treatment uncertainties
are genuine uncertainties, and have not been answered by existing
As part of the process of identifying treatment uncertainties, the JLA works closely with an online resource called the UK Database of Uncertainties about the Effects of Treatments
Priority Setting Partnerships are therefore required to ensure that the uncertainties they identify have been checked and entered into UK DUETs before the prioritisation exercise can begin.
This is a key quality control aspect of the JLA process and means that the uncertainties which Partnerships prioritise do genuinely need to be addressed.
The process of checking and entering uncertainties into UK DUETs is described here
