James Lind Alliance - Non-alcohol related liver and gallbladder disorders

Friday, 12 June 2015 10:30

There are several different prevention and treatment options for various non-alcohol related liver and gallbladder disorders. It is important that we try to understand which of these options are effective and make a difference to people with or at risk of developing non-alcohol related liver and gallbladder disorders and/or the people who care for them. We think it is vital that any further research into the prevention and treatment of non-alcohol related liver and gallbladder disorders should focus on questions that are important to people who have or are at risk of these disorders, the people who care for them and the health professionals (doctors and nurses) that treat and prevent these disorders. We are therefore collecting responses to the questions below from all these groups. Your responses will help us start to identify where there is uncertainty regarding prevention and treatment of non-alcohol related liver and gallbladder disorders - that is where there is no existing research that already provides a reliable answer - so that future research can focus on the most important questions.

The survey is available online at

The deadline for the survey is 31st July
