Materials for Researchers

In this section of the Toolkit we have compiled a short list of the most relevant published research on the efficacy of the NASG in a variety of countries and settings.  In addition to the individual articles, we have summarized the evidence in a brief.  There is also a short history of the development of the NASG. In addition there is a useful link to the “Publications Page” of the full set of published research, including qualitative research.
