   <p>Geriatric day hospitals developed rapidly in the United Kingdom 
    in the 1960s as an important component of care provision. The 
    model has since been widely applied in several Western countries. 
    Day hospitals provide multidisciplinary assessment and rehabilitation 
    in an outpatient setting and have a pivotal position between hospital 
    and home based services. Although there is considerable descriptive 
    literature on day hospital care,<xref ref-type="bibr" rid="B1">1</xref> 
    concern has been expressed that evidence for effectiveness is equivocal 
    and that day hospital care is expensive.<xref ref-type="bibr" rid="B2">2</xref> 
    We therefore undertook a systematic review of the randomised trials 
    of day hospital care.</p>
