From: Interventions for drug-using offenders with co-occurring mental health problems: a systematic review and economic appraisal

Outcomes Illustrative comparative risks* (95 % CI) Relative effect (95 % CI) No of Participants (studies) Quality of the evidence (GRADE)
Assumed risk Corresponding risk
Control Mental health court
Self report dichotomous criminal activity
Follow-up: mean 12 months
Study population RR 1.05 (0.9 to 1.22) 208 (1 study) very low
724 per 1000 761 per 1000 (652 to 884)
Moderate
725 per 1000 761 per 1000 (652 to 885)
  1. *The basis for the assumed risk (e.g. the median control group risk across studies) is provided in footnotes. The corresponding risk (and its 95 % confidence interval) is based on the assumed risk in the comparison group and the relative effect of the intervention (and its 95 % CI)
  2. CI confidence interval
  3. GRADE Working Group grades of evidence
  4. High quality: Further research is very unlikely to change our confidence in the estimate of effect
  5. Moderate quality: Further research is likely to have an important impact on our confidence in the estimate of effect and may change the estimate
  6. Low quality: Further research is very likely to have an important impact on our confidence in the estimate of effect and is likely to change the estimate
  7. Very low quality: We are very uncertain about the estimate
