The priority briefings are part of the PenCLAHRC prioritisation process.
The topics are selected at the first stage of prioritisation by the Executive Group. They are written in a limited amount of time (approximately two days) and are designed to inform the second stage of prioritisation with the PenCLAHRC Stakeholder Group.
The priority briefings aim to supplement the prioritised questions with further relevant information about the context of the topic, its relevance to local health objectives, how large a concern it might be in the population, the potential benefits of resolving the issue and what past and present research reports on the topic already (what we know and what we don’t know). They are designed to provide information suitable for all members of the Stakeholder Group in order that they make informed voting decisions. They are not designed to represent fully comprehensive or systematic reviews of the literature and should not be considered as such.
