However, pooling comorbidity estimates can be challenging due to heterogeneity in diagnostic criteria and in the overall study design. The aim of this study was to systematically review and, where appropriate, meta-analyse estimates related to the pairwise comorbidity between mood disorders and substance-related disorders, after sorting these estimates by various study designs. ...

Background: Police and paramedics are often the first to respond to individuals in suicide crisis and have an important role to play in facilitating optimal care pathways. Yet, little evidence exists to inform these responses. Data linkage provides one approach to examining this knowledge gap. Aim: We identified studies that examined suicide behaviors and linked to police or ambulance data. Method: A systematic search of PubMed and Scopus was undertaken to identify data linkage studies that: (1)...

We completed a scoping review to map current knowledge and identify research gaps relating to the physical health and activity of patients under forensic psychiatric care, and interventions to improve physical health and activity. Twenty-four articles comprising 22 studies were included in the review. There was a high prevalence of overweight and obesity among forensic patients and weight gain often occurred following admission.

The purpose of this scoping review was to summarize research that uses linked data to examine peripartum suicidal behaviours and critically appraise studies to identify evidence gaps and future research priorities. A systematic search of PubMed, Scopus, and grey literature was undertaken to identify data linkage studies that examined suicidal behaviours among women in the peripartum period. All articles available through PubMed and Scopus up until the search date of 26 September 2019 were deemed...

These clinical services provide recovery-oriented residential rehabilitation to people affected by severe and persistent mental illness. Typically, nurses occupy the majority of staff roles. However, two of the three sites in the study were trialling a novel integrated staffing model where the majority of staff were peop...

OBJECTIVES To overcome key knowledge gaps in relation to justice involved and vulnerable young people and their sexual health and to compare this group with their peers from other youth health surveys in Australia to determine the extent of the issues. METHODS Young people, aged between 14 and 17 years, who had ever been or were currently involved with the criminal justice system were purposively sampled. The survey was anonymous and delivered using Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI). ...
