Table 21 TRANSFER Assessment – secondary context

From: The TRANSFER Approach for assessing the transferability of systematic review findings

Review finding: Homeless programmes lead to fewer days spent homeless compared to usual services
Secondary context: Norway
Average length of homelessness among homeless: > 4 years
Quality of usual housing services: high
Climate conditions: Cold climate most of year
TRANSFER factors Assessment Explanation Supporting studies
Length of homelessness of participants Minor concerns The intervention appears to have a slightly reduced effect for individuals who have been homeless for longer than 6 months. 1–10
Quality of «usual housing services» Minor concerns The intervention appears to have a slightly reduced effect when compared with high quality usual services. 1–10
Climate conditions No concerns No concerns regarding differences between studies and review context related to climate. 1–10
Overall assessment Moderate concerns There are minor differences between the included studies and the review context with respect to length of homelessness, quality of usual services or climate. However, the review finding is only based on evidence from cold climate settings, and we do not have any evidence available regarding how the intervention may work in warm settings. 1–10
