Systematic Review Protocols

Review question/objective: The objectives of the review are to determine:

* The effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions for OH in elderly people and people with a neurological condition.

* Whether, in the elderly or people with a neurological condition who have OH, non-pharmacological interventions:-are effective in improving OH, resting blood pressure and cerebral blood flow-allow more or earlier mobilization (especially standing) to undertake activities of daily living and/or participate in rehabilitation programs

Specifically, the review question is:

What is the evidence base for non-pharmacological interventions in treating orthostatic hypotension (OH) in elderly people and people with a neurological condition?
