Criticized for NOT doing something How much evidence is needed for the application of innovation to be appropriate? Personalized medicine: A medical model that separates patients into different groups - with medical decisions, practices, interventions and/or products being tailored to the individual

patient based on their predicted response or risk of disease Therapeutic ratio: Effect on tumour V Effect on normal tissue Individuals vary in their sensitivity to ionising radiation.

Ataxia telangiectasia 1 in 300 000 progressive cerebellar ataxia, ocular motor dyspraxia, dysarthria deficiency in cell-mediated immunity thymic hypoplasia, hypogonadism, growth retardation, telangiectasia increased radiosensitivity 10% of homozygotes develop a malignancy in

8 9 Final thoughts Innovative Practice should not be a substitute for full randomised clinical trials where such trials possible. But some major trends in treatments (e.g. personalisation) may not be suitable for standard trial design and/or standard

statistics. Therefore a innovation framework that protects patients and clinicians is likely to become increasingly required.
