Abstract

 

Dickson K, Sutcliffe K , Gough D (2009) The experiences, views and preferences of Looked After children and young people and their families and carers about the care system London: Social Science Research Unit, Institute of Education, University of London   

A review of qualitative evidence available to answer the question

What are the experiences, views and preferences of children and young people who are or have been looked after and their families and carers about the care system?  

This  has been selected for inclusion in NHS Evidence because it meets the NHS Evidence definition of a reliable systematic review. This is a systematic review in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and those published by a journal which conforms to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) standard. If not published by one of these journals, a systematic review is deemed reliable if the abstract reports the inclusion/exclusion criteria, confirms two or more sources have been searched, and incorporates a synthesis of included studies. A systematic review may also be deemed reliable if it has been appraised and selected by a group of experts for inclusion in an Evidence Update.

Systematic reviews listed as supporting references in Evidence Updates are also included.
