The Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences’ Centre for Evidence in Transplantation (CET) has recently completed a research project which prioritised research topics in transplantation.

Funded by the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre and run by the Kidney Transplant Priority Setting Partnership, the project involved asking over 250 patients, carers and healthcare professionals to rate the importance of the unanswered questions that the partnership had identified in the area of kidney transplantation.

The responses from the prioritisation survey were then used during a consensus workshop, held at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London on 3 February 2016. A group of 20 kidney transplant recipients, donors and clinicians considered the top 25 ranked treatment uncertainties from the survey, and agreed a top ten list of priorities for the future of research in kidney transplantation.

The Kidney Transplant Priorities Setting Partnership is led by the CET, which was established in 2005 with the aim of improving the quality and availability of evidence in the field of solid organ transplantation.
