Descripción: 

The UK Database of Uncertainties about the Effects of Treatments (UK DUETs) has been established in the UK to publish uncertainties about the effects of treatment which cannot currently be answered by referring to reliable up-to-date systematic reviews of existing research evidence. Systematic reviews are based on worldwide searches for reliable, relevant evidence, analysed using methods to reduce biases and the play of chance. More detailed information about systematic reviews and fair tests of the effects of medical treatments is available in the James Lind Library.

UK DUETs draws on three main sources to identify uncertainties about the effects of treatments

•patients', carers' and clinicians' questions about the effects of treatments
•research recommendations in reports of systematic reviews and clinical guidelines
•ongoing research, both systematic reviews in preparation and new 'primary' studies
