Objectives: This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (qualitative). The objectives are as follows:. The objectives of this review are threefold, as follows. Firstly, to assess the content of knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours of first responders, clinicians, and non-clinical support staff towards service users with SH presentations. Secondly, to understand how service user and staff characteristics (e.g. age, gender, sociodemographic background), type of SH presentation (e.g. method, repetition), and contextual factors (e.g. hospital environment, presence of bystanders) affect the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours of first responders, clinicians, and non-clinical support staff in providing acute care. Thirdly, to assess whether clinicians' knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours have evolved over time.
