Reason for withdrawal from publication
21 February 2003: Following an overhaul of all our psychosocial reviews this review has been permanently withdrawn. It will be replaced by a new review titled: Information and support interventions for carers of people with dementia. It will deal with educational and support group interventions, social support and social activities and with care planning interventions. We are lucky to be able to keep the same team of reviewers.
28 August 2003: The new protocol has now been submitted and will be on issue 4/2003.
