SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTER
The core of evidence synthesis is the systematic review of literature of a particular intervention, condition or issue.
Registration of Systematic Review Titles
Please note: this register is for the use of JBI affiliated entities ONLY. Registration of a systematic review title on the JBI website is to promote collaboration between affiliated entities via highlighting current work to other JBI review authors and to recognise that the registered topic is currently in development to avoid any unintended and/or unnecessary duplication of research effort.
Registered systematic reviews that are currently underway are listed below. Protocols for these reviews may already be published or in preparation for publication within six months of initial registration. To avoid duplication, titles in this list should not be replicated by other review authors. Please contact the listed Primary Reviewer or the JBI Synthesis Science Unit if you would like further information about any of these registered reviews.
Registration of titles on this web page does not in any way constitute acceptance of the topic by JBI Evidence Synthesis.

Family carers may include any and all family members involved in providing unpaid care to people with stroke, including but not limited to spouses, siblings and children. There is no age limit on participants. The review will focus broadly on family carers, and will not require that the family carer being referred to is the primary carer of the person with stroke.
The review will consider psychosocial interventions for family carers aimed at improving resilience. 'Psychosocial intervention' is defined as any intervention that focuses on psychological and/ or social factors rather than biological factors. This therefore includes all psychological interventions specified by the UK Department of Health review of psychological therapies including counseling. Social interventions may include but not limited to social skills training and befriending (Ruddy & House, 2005). Psycho-social interventions with the following features will be included in the review:

Studies with randomized and non-randomized designs that assessed survival outcomes in de novo metastatic breast cancer treated with surgery versus no surgery will be included in the qualitative systematic review. Data regarding median age, tumor size, histological type, histological grade, hormone receptors, HER2 amplification status, lymph node status, number of metastases, metastatic sites, treatments received (chemotherapy-hormonal therapy, targeted therapy, radiotherapy, type of local surgery, axillary lymph node dissection), margins of surgical resections, and median overall survival of the two populations (surgery versus no surgery) will be extracted. The quality of studies will be investigated based on the Newcastle-Ottawa score and ROB2 tool.
