Not Routinely Funded
There exists very little conclusive empirical research regarding the use of SIT. Available papers report methodological errors with existing studies and results therefore need to be interpreted with caution. The evidence does not support an overwhelming benefit of SIT and therefore, any decision to fund this treatment should give careful consideration of the data presented in this report.
- Due to the lack of strong evidence and cost effectiveness, SIT should not be routinely funded.
- If patients are to be prescribed a course of SIT, the families and carers must be informed of the lack of robust evidence surrounding this topic.
- Future funding requests should be acknowledged in future policy development.
