Acceptability and Feasibility of Task sharing

Acceptability and Feasibility of Task sharing

A MHIN review summary* for the systematic review entitled: 'The Acceptability and Feasibility of Task-Sharing for Mental Healthcare in Low and Middle Income Countries: A Systematic Review' (Padmanathan and De Silva, 2013). 

Task-sharing is a common strategy to overcome a shortage of human resources, which is a major barrier to scaling up mental health services. This systematic review highlights the importance of research into the acceptability and feasibility of task sharing interventions; specifically the need to evaluate the acceptability to participants, their families, the workforce and healthcare professionals.
