Abstract:

This article discusses the problem of treatment uncertainties and the value of involving service users in the development of clinical trials to ensure that trials measure the outcomes that matter to participants.

It also describes the establishment of the Database of Uncertainty about the Effects of Treatments (DUETs) and how this could help to influence the research agenda.
