The main goal of this project is to provide a transdiagnostic overview study on the prevalence of FD and its effective treatments used in the different medical disciplines. This ESR will learn how to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to (1) quantify prevalence of FD across Europe; and (2) identify effectivity of symptom-specific and generic treatment elements in relation to characteristics of patients with FD, thus identifying predictors of treatment success across the different diagnoses. The ESR will also contribute to the cross-European survey on health care for FD to study the implementation of the identified evidence-based treatments, informed by a non-academic secondment at BIHC that will teach practical aspects of implementation of scientific findings in occupational health settings.
