Prevalence of Schizophrenia in Urban Regions


Ref: nursing0004


A comparative systematic review of worldwide-published research comparing the incidences of psychoses in urban and rural geographical regions is crucial in determining a major contributor to an illness that affects many people throughout the world. This comparative systematic review collates current existing studies from 2001–2006.  Many scholarly narrative reviews regarding the prevalence of psychoses have been published in recent years.  The large amount of data available on this topic requires a systematic approach. The systematic approach examines and evaluates the quality and effectiveness of studies as a whole, instead of the more singular traditional reviews.  This will provide healthcare practitioners quality information that is effective and crucial in speaking the patient’s language, understanding their culture and perception, which leads to providing the best treatment for their patients  Therefore, this review of existing current studies dated between the years 2001 – 2006 was conducted in order to; 
  1. Examine the causes, risks, and contributing factors of psychoses
  2. Examine the prevalence rates of psychosis in urban regions versus rural regions
  3. Evaluate the methodological quality of the included systematic reviews
