Steps Research – James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership

Steps are launching a new project to answer your questions about any aspect of children’s leg, hip and foot surgery.



There is a lot that we still do not know about treatment options for children who present with bone and joint conditions affecting the lower limb:

  • Which children are best treated with surgery?
  • When is surgery advised?
  • How is a good recovery ensured?

If you are a patient, parent/carer or a clinician, you can help to ensure that research in this area addresses important areas of uncertainty. You can use our survey questionnaire to tell us of any unanswered questions that have affected you.


This James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership process brings patients, carers and clinicians to work together to:

  • Identify unanswered questions
  • Prioritise research questions
  • Produce a ‘top ten’ list of agreed research priorities

Please submit any questions you have to our very quick survey:
