‘The multifaceted consequences and economic costs of child anxiety problems: A systematic review and meta-analysis’
Open Access paper from the JCPP
A systematic review of Medline, PsycINFO, EconLit and the National Health Service Economic Evaluation Database was conducted for longitudinal and economic studies reporting on the association between childhood anxiety problems and at least one individual-, family- or societal-level outcome or cost. All studies were synthesised narratively. For longitudinal studies, ‘effect direction’ was used as a common metric, with random effects meta-analysis undertaken where possible.
