STUDY 2016 HTM file
Improving the delivery of brief interventions for heavy drinking in primary health care: outcome results of the Optimizing Delivery of Health Care Intervention (ODHIN) five-country cluster randomized factorial trial

Anderson P., Bendtsen P., Spak F. et al.
Addiction: 2016, 111(11), p. 1935–1945.
The EU-funded ODHIN trial tested eight strategies to promote screening and brief interventions for risky drinking in primary health care units in five European countries. Results suggested that financial incentives were key but were reinforced by training and support.

STUDY 2019 HTM file
Cost-effectiveness of strategies to improve delivery of brief interventions for heavy drinking in primary care: results from the ODHIN trial

Angus C., Li J., Romero-Rodriguez E. et al.
European Journal of Public Health: 2019, 29(2), p. 219–225.
Could combinations of three strategies – training and support, financial reimbursement, and the opportunity to refer patients to a website – cost-effectively boost delivery of brief interventions in European primary care? The important aim was to find the best way to narrow the ‘implementation gap’ between the number of patients who could benefit from these interventions and those who receive them.

STUDY 2013 HTM file
Modelling the cost-effectiveness of alcohol screening and brief interventions in primary care in England

Purshouse R.C., Brennan A., Rafia R. et al.
Alcohol and Alcoholism: 2013, 48(2), p. 180–188.
Simulation study calculated health care cost savings and benefits for patients in England which make routine GP-based screening and brief advice for excessive drinking look an unmissable bargain, but the key assumptions derived from studies divorced from how interventions would routinely be implemented.

STUDY 2018 HTM file
Remote alcohol monitoring to facilitate incentive-based treatment for alcohol use disorder: a randomized trial

Koffarnus M.N., Bickel W.K., Kablinger A.S.
Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research: 2018, 42(12), p. 2423–2431.
Can new digital technologies do anything to boost the ‘limited, yet promising’ evidence base for incentivising abstinence among people with alcohol use disorders?

STUDY 2018 HTM file
Steps Towards Alcohol Misuse Prevention Programme (STAMPP): a school-based and community-based cluster randomised controlled trial

McKay M., Agus A., Cole J. et al.
BMJ Open: 2018; 8:e019722.
Trialled in schools in Northern Ireland and Scotland, an alcohol harm reduction curriculum for secondary schools plus a parental component led to fewer pupils drinking heavily at a single sitting, but without significantly reducing harm related to the child’s drinking.

REVIEW 2018 HTM file
Implementing managed alcohol programs in hospital settings: A review of academic and grey literature

Brooks H.L., Kassam S., Salvalaggio G. et al.
Drug and Alcohol Review: 2018, 37(1), p. S145–S155.
Is it feasible (and desirable) to give regular doses of alcohol to hospital inpatients when supervised withdrawal or short-term abstinence from drinking is not a realistic goal?

REVIEW 2017 HTM file
Screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment for opioid and other substance use during infertility treatment

Wright T.E.
Fertility and Sterility: 2017, 108(2), p. 214–221.
How can infertility specialists integrate screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment into their everyday practice?

REVIEW 2010 HTM file
Alcohol-use disorders: Preventing the development of hazardous and harmful drinking

National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence
National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, 2010.
In these UK national prevention guidelines, experts prioritised population-wide changes like price rises and outlet restrictions which affect everyone, independent of the choices they make. But in England government prefers to target what they see as the troublesome minority, not the responsible majority.

REVIEW 2017 HTM file
A systematic review of the effectiveness of alcohol brief interventions for the UK military personnel moving back to civilian life

Wigham S., Bauer A., Ferguson J. et al.
Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps: 2017, 163, p. 242–250.
For the UK armed forces, with their unique organisational, social and drinking cultures, what can be learned from US studies about reducing harm among military personnel adjusting to civilian life?

REVIEW 2018 HTM file
Effectiveness of brief alcohol interventions in primary care populations

Kaner EFS., Beyer FR., Muirhead C. et al.
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2018
Update of a key document forming the basis of claims that brief interventions work in ‘real-world’ settings. Combined findings from randomised trials confirm that brief advice in primary care can reduce drinking, but will those reductions be realised in contemporary routine practice?
