Surveillance decision

Surveillance decision

We will not update the guideline at this time.

Reason for the decision

We found 60 new studies through surveillance of this guideline.

This included new evidence on experience of care, assessment and care pathways, service delivery models, psychological and psychosocial interventions, pharmacological and physical interventions, and young people with psychosis and coexisting substance misuse that supports current recommendations. We asked topic experts whether this new evidence would affect current recommendations on coexisting psychosis and substance misuse. Generally, the topic experts thought that an update was not needed.

None of the new evidence considered in surveillance of this guideline was thought to have an effect on current recommendations.

Other clinical areas

We did not find any new evidence in areas not covered by the original guideline.


No equalities issues were identified during the surveillance process.

Overall decision

After considering all the new evidence and views of topic experts, we decided that an update is not necessary for this guideline.
