The National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) six-stage intervention development model moves forward from basic science, through generation and refinement then efficacy testings, on to effectiveness then implementation research. Based on basic science, Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has reproducible evidence of efficacy. This project will involve an update of the literature based on the NIH model to identify where the evidence regarding MBCT and potentially other related mindfulness-based interventions is well, or not so well, progressed with consideration of recommendations for future research and approaches to encouraging changes in policy, system design and healthcare commissioning.
