CIPRUS (Cognitive-behavioural Intervention in Primary care for Undifferentiated Somatoform disorder) (WC2013-099)

Background

Starting date: 01/04/2014

Cognitive-behavioural (CB) interventions decrease undifferentiated somatoform disorder (USD) symptoms and improve functioning in secondary care. To date it is, however, unknown whether a short-term CB intervention for USD, provided by a primary care mental health care practitioner (MHNP) is (cost-)effective compared to usual care.
