Kaija sePPä Martti KuoKKanen Implementing brief alcohol intervention in primary and occupational health care Reflections on two Finnish projects Introduction In this paper we aim to measure the outcome of a two decades-long Finnish implementation of brief alcohol intervention by asking how actively the municipalities joined the nationwide primary health care implementation project (VAltakunnallinen Mini-interventio- Projekti [National Brief Intervention Project] – VAMP) and what was the quality of the two most recent nationwide projects; the VAMPproject and the Occupational Health Care Project. Based on several randomized studies, systematic reviews and meta-analyses (Ballesteros et al. 2004; Whitlock et al. 2004; Bertholet et al. 2005) brief alcohol intervention (BI) on hazardous drinking has been shown to be effective. Compared to other tools available to address alcohol misuse in health and social care, it is has been shown to be the most effective (Österberg & Babor 2005). The latest Cochrane review demonstrates that for one effective BI 7–10 patients need to be treated (Kaner et al. 2007). In spite of the effectiveness of BI, widespread implementation has been difficult (Nilsen et al. 2006). A B S T R A C T K. Seppä & M. Kuokkanen: Implementing brief alcohol intervention in primary and occupational health care. Reflections on two Finnish projects. The article describes the implementing of brief alcohol interventions in primary and occupational health care in Finland by studying the two most recent nationwide projects. These projects build on earlier national and international research results and practical knowledge and are tailored according to the Finnish political and medical culture. we report how actively the municipalities joined with the nationwide implementation project in primary health care and the quality of the primary and occupational health care projects based on recently published quality instructions. Our conclusion is that these two projects have shown that practitioners in health care centres can be activated and thereby also make a widespread implementation of brief alcohol intervention possible. The attitudes to brief alcohol intervention, especially among health care leaders have changed for the positive, and education and training are now actively asked for as well by primary as occupational health centres.
