Implementing brief

Implementing brief alcohol intervention in primary and occupational health care insufficient training, too small resources, confusion about the target group of BI, lack of simple guidelines, uncertainty in the justification of BI – have been tackled and mainly overcome during the present two projects The importance of the present projects in implementation of brief alcohol intervention is smaller than what could be interpreted by the progress; we owe a lot to what has been done earlier. As far as we know this is the first project assessed according to the criteria by STAKES. The quality of the present two projects can be judged as relatively good. They used all the expertise gathered from collaboration in the WHO study group and PHEPA. The main explanation, however, to their success is, that they started at the right time and used updated knowledge on the topic; brief intervention and implementation. Fu- REFERENCES Aalto, M.

It may be that the final goal, decreasing alcohol consumption, may never be seen if the primary preventive measures in Finland remain un-effectively used. Even in that case it can be speculated that without these practices risky drinking would have been more common. Kaija Seppä, M.d.
