One of the major changes in the public health system has been the introduction of Family Medicine concepts as part of the overall Primary Health Care (PHC) reform that began in 2000.

Laprega: Implementing brief interventions for alcohol problems in the public health system in the region of Ribeirão Preto, Brazil: evaluation of the PAI-PAD training model INTRODUCTION This paper provides a comprehensive view of the implementation of alcohol screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) in the primary health care system of the region of Ribeirão Preto, in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, mostly concerning the evaluation of SBIRT training. METHODS The data were obtained from a community-based study of 774 public primary health care professionals enrolled in an SBIRT training and implementation program in the region of Ribeirão Preto, SP, Brazil, from 2003 to 2008. The majority of health professionals who attended the trainings were community health agents (59%) working in the Family Health Program. Physicians, psychologists and nurses also contributed. Data collection was performed using selfreport questionnaires, direct interviews, observational methods and focus groups. RESULTS There was a statistically significant decrease in health professionals’ positive beliefs about alcohol consumption in the post-training period and a significant increase in SBIRT knowledge. Among professional groups, physicians and nurses showed most improvement in NORDIC STUDIES ON ALCOHOL AND DRUGS V O L . 25. 2008 . 6 Research report 539
