ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR SELECTING STUDIES: Included studies were randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in adult patients in which the patient-clinician relationship was systematically manipulated and healthcare outcomes were either objective (e.g., blood pressure) or validated subjective measures (e.g., pain scores). Studies were excluded if the encounter was a routine physical, or a mental health or substance abuse visit; if the outcome was an intermediate outcome such as patient satisfaction or adherence to treatment; if the patient-clinician relationship was manipulated solely by …

Nine relevant studies were identified. The number of analyzed patients ranged between 12 and 5706 patients. The study quality was moderate. Especially the risk of bias regarding the measurement of influencing factors was mostly unclear.”Psychiatric disorders” (N = 5) and having to take “higher doses of ribavirin” (N = 3) showed a negative influence on adherence. In contrast, a “HIV co-infection” (N = 2) and the “hemoglobin level” (N = 2) were associated with a positive influence on adherence. Furthermore, there is the tendency that male patients are …

METHODS AND ANALYSIS: We will conduct a streamed, mixed-methods systematic review to find and evaluate interventions designed to reduce repeat unintended teen pregnancies. OUR AIMS ARE TO IDENTIFY: Who is at greater risk of repeat unintended pregnancies? Which interventions are effective, cost-effective, how they work, in what setting and for whom? What are the barriers and facilitators to intervention uptake? Traditional electronic database searches will be augmented by targeted searches for evidence ‘clusters’ and guided by an advisory group of …

Understanding the reasons of cannabis use may help to develop comprehensive treatments and, as a result, improve the psychosis course. Methods: A systematic review of studies published in English and Spanish language from 1990 until March 2012 describing reasons for and subjective effects of cannabis use in patients with psychosis were reviewed. However, only those studies in which cannabis use was …

Results We identified 15 735 unique records of which only seven met the inclusion criteria. All studies reported contact coverage. No study explicitly measured effective coverage, but it was possible to estimate this for one study. In six studies the numerator of coverage, service utilization, was estimated using routine clinical information, whereas one study used a national community survey. The methods for estimating the denominator, the population in need of services, were more varied and included national prevalence surveys case …
