Example text

A key issue in the treatment of antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy is the test of therapeutic outcome: how will the practitioner know if treatment has been successful? In the past, treatments have focused on either people feeling better or behaving better, and practitioners have sometimes assumed that one implies the other. Treatments also have within them an implied theoretical model about what is ‘wrong’ with the individual concerned: but if the model is wrong, then the treatment may be ineffective, even if it is well thought out and well delivered.

10 (Nordic Cochrane Centre, 2006). 2Based on the approach suggested by Furukawa and colleagues (2006). 47 Methods used to develop this guideline Consultation with another reviewer or members of the GDG was used to overcome difficulties with coding. Data from studies included in existing systematic reviews were extracted independently by one reviewer and cross-checked with the existing data set. Where possible, two independent reviewers extracted data from new studies. Where double data extraction was not possible, data extracted by one reviewer was checked by the second reviewer.

This structured approach divides each question into four components: the patients (the population under study), the interventions (what is being done), the comparisons (other main treatment options) and the outcomes (the measures of how effective the interventions have been) (see Text Box 1). Questions relating to assessment do not involve an intervention designed to treat a particular condition, therefore the PICO framework was not used. Rather, the questions were designed to pick up key issues specifically relevant to assessment instruments, for example their accuracy, reliability, and how they relate to clinical practice.
