|Methods||Systematic review of the literature to identify relevant papers. Appraisal of study quality using the CASP. A meta-synthesis using the thematic synthesis approach. Data analysis in NVivo 8.|
|Outcomes||We built an explanatory framework for differences in benzodiazepine prescribing which could be used to inform future research, and as the basis for guidance and/or interventions to reduce inappropriate prescribing of benzodiazepines.|
