dc.description.abstractBackground: There is growing evidence for behavioural activation (BA) in a range of disorders both delivered in person and via the internet. Objective: To determine the conditions in which the efficacy of internet-based BA has been evaluated and to assess its efficacy along with the quality of evidence. Method: Studies were identified from electronic databases (EMBASE, ISI Web of Knowledge, Medline, CINAHL, PsychINFO, Cochrane) and reference lists of included studies. Two reviewers independently screened articles for inclusion and extracted data and assessed the quality of evidence for each outcome for which a pooled effect could be estimated by using The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation framework. Findings: We found nine randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of 2152 adult participants, all of whom had depression. Random effects meta-analyses showed that internet-based BA was non-inferior to other forms of behavioural therapy and mindfulness that were delivered in person and was superior to physical activity, psychoeducation or treatment as usual and waitlist in reducing both depressive and anxious symptoms post-treatment and at follow-up. Study quality was low to moderate. Conclusions: Evidence for the efficacy of internet-based BA for depression is promising and this may be a cost-effective alternative to treatment that is delivered in person. Further research is needed to determine its use efficacy in other diagnoses
