Exploring the effectiveness of discharge programmes
This systematic review explores the existing evidence of the effectiveness of discharge programmes for people living institutional settings such as in-patient health facilities, the armed forces, and prison. Even if the number of studies included is small, of mixed methodological quality and exclusively from the USA, it underscores that discharge programmes can be effective at reducing homelessness.
