Sets out clear recommendations for healthcare staff (based on the best available evidence) on how to assess and manage adults and young people (aged 14+) who have both psychosis and a substance misuse problem, in order to integrate treatment for both conditions and thus improve their care.
Commissioned by the UK?s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
Includes comprehensive reviews of assessment, care pathways and service delivery models, psychological and pharmacological interventions for both conditions, and treatment and services for young people.
The CD-ROM contains all of the evidence on which the recommendations are based, presented as profile tables (that analyse quality of data) and forest plots (plus, info on using/interpreting forest plots). This material is not available anywhere else.
All mental health professionals, especially those working in substance misuse services.
