Recently, investigators at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Evidence-Based Synthesis Program site in Minneapolis, MN conducted a systematic review of the literature to evaluate whether (and which) family-involved treatments improve patient outcomes–and whether (and which) family-involved treatments are superior to alternative interventions; particularly patient-only treatments. Primary outcomes included mental health outcomes and couple/family functioning for patients with mental health conditions. Other outcomes included treatment adherence, use of mental healthcare, patient satisfaction, and social support for patients.
