An initiative to improve the quality of evidence for surgery and interventional therapies
Conventional medical research methods, such as randomised trials, have proved challenging to apply in fields where the intervention is complex and operator independant.
The evidence supporting current practice in many of these disciplines is poorer than it ought be. The IDEAL network is dedicated to improving the scientific evaluation of interventional therapies.
