This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
This review focuses on three main objectives:
1) Quantitative review of the efficacy of telephone counselling for carers of people with dementia.
2) Synthesis of qualitative studies to explore carers’ experiences of receiving telephone counselling.
3) Integration of the first and second objective to identify aspects of the intervention that are valued and working well, as well as those interventional components which should be improved or redesigned.
In general, the nature and quality of the evidence available will be indicated, so that practitioners and researchers can get an up-to-date overview.
