A substantial evidence base exists to support the effectiveness of collaborative care, case management and stepped care in improving patient adherence with treatment and improved clinical outcomes. Clinician education and guidelines, when offered by themselves, are largely ineffective strategies. A near uniform finding was that the improved outcomes of successful strategies are associated with increased healthcare costs. HEN, initiated and coordinated by the WHO Regional Office for Europe, is an information service for public health and health care decision-makers in the WHO European Region. Other interested parties might also benefit from HEN. [P. 2] Résumé français: http://www.euro.who.int/HEN/Syntheses/capdepr/20041208_2?language=French
