Objective To identify research priorities that have been answered, six years after being identified as important to people with epilepsy and epilepsy professionals. Background The DUETs database collates key unanswered questions identified by patients and professionals. In 2011, 398 questions were created using focus group methodologies. We wanted to know whether published research has since answered these important questions. Design The top 20 ranked questions for both patients and clinicians were studied. The PubMed and Cochrane databases were searched for published papers and NICE, SIGN and ILAE guidance for authoritative statements. The number of papers targeted at answering these research priorities was recorded.
