Ayurveda for managing noncommunicable diseases in organisation for economic co-operation and development: A qualitative systematic review protocol on experiences, perceptions, and perspectives of ayurvedic practitioners and patients.

Health Science Reports 2023 September
BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ayurveda is a traditional medicine that originated in the Indian subcontinent, and its use remains widespread in the Indian subcontinent, especially for managing noncommunicable diseases (NCDs). It is also becoming increasingly popular in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries as complementary and alternative medicine. Qualitative research studies have been conducted in various OECD countries to explore the experiences, perceptions, and perspectives of Ayurvedic practitioners and patients with NCDs regarding the usage of Ayurveda for managing these conditions. However, to date, no systematic review on this topic has been published. Therefore, this systematic review aims to synthesize the experiences, perceptions, and perspectives of Ayurvedic practitioners and patients with NCDs on the usage of Ayurveda for managing these conditions in OECD countries.

METHODS: The systematic review will be conducted in accordance with the joanna briggs institute systematic review guideline on qualitative evidence. We will include qualitative research studies conducted among Ayurvedic practitioners or adult patients with NCDs in any OECD member country to explore experiences, perceptions, or perspectives regarding the usage of Ayurveda for managing NCDs. MEDLINE (Ovid), Embase (Ovid), CINAHL (EBSCOhost), PsycINFO (Ovid), AMED, and Web of Science will be searched to identify published studies. EthOS and ProQuest Dissertations and Theses will be searched to identify unpublished studies. No date or language restrictions will be applied. Initially, a narrative synthesis will be conducted. Where possible, study findings will be pooled using the meta-aggregation approach.
