To present existing evidence and evidence gaps of methods used by social services in Sweden. The evidence map will include:
We will search for systematic reviews that address methods implemented to support persons with functional disabilities, persons with drug or alcohol addiction, older people with social care needs and recipients of financial assistance. Within predefined domains. Thereafter two reviewers will independently screen the retrieved abstracts for relevance. Identified full text reviews will be assessed independently by two reviewers for relevance and thereafter for methodological quality using AMSTAR. Differences will be resolved by consensus. Systematic reviews judged to have low or moderate risk of bias will be used to assess the current body of evidence, including identifying those domains where insufficient evidence is available. Only methods used within the social services in Sweden are included. The project will identify evidence gaps but will not provide a prioritization setting.
