Formatted Abstract/Summary Background: Joint crisis plans/advance directives are agreed upon by patients & their clinicians for emergency treatment when patients are too unwell to give consent.

Aims: To examine the effectiveness of advance treatment directives (ADs) for people with severe mental illness.

Method: A systematic review/meta-analysis of RCTs of adults with severe mental illness, comparing any form of advance directive with standard care.

Results: Preliminary results are that more intense interventions, including a lengthy interview with patients and carers, are more effective than booklets

Conclusion: Evidence for the effect of advance directives on health service use appears better than that for compulsory community treatment.
