Implementation of treatment guidelines for specialist mental health care of severely mentally ill patients
This is a protocol for a systematic review. The review aims to examine the efficacy of guideline implementation strategies in improving process outcomes (performance of healthcare providers) and patient outcomes, and to explore the performance of different strategies for guideline implementation. Studies examining any active or passive guideline implementation strategy for the treatment of adults with severe mental disorders, namely schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar disorder, and severe depression will be included. The review will include RCTs regardless of the randomisation level (patient, or health care provider), controlled clinical trials (CCT), controlled "before and after" (CBA) studies and observational studies.
