Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Qualitative). The objectives are as follows:

The overall aim is to undertake and integrate a qualitative evidence synthesis with two Cochrane effectiveness reviews of protocolized weaning (Blackwood 2013; Blackwood 2014) to identify contextual factors that impact on the use of protocols for weaning critically ill adults and children from mechanical ventilation.

The review questions are as follows.

Which contextual factors (facilitators and barriers to implementation) may have contributed to the heterogeneity in effect sizes of the randomized controlled trials included in the Blackwood 2014 and Blackwood 2013 reviews on protocolized weaning?

Which contextual factors (facilitators and barriers to implementation) may have an impact on the use of protocols for weaning critically ill adults and children from mechanical ventilation?
