Public Launch of two Alcohol Brief Interventions reports

News Release issued today on behalf of Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP), Institute for Social Marketing - University of Stirling, University of Newcastle and University of Edinburgh

Two new reports (see links on this page) to be launched at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh today highlight the important role that GPs have in raising the issue of alcohol use in GP consultations. The reports, ‘Practice and attitudes of General Practitioners in the delivery of Alcohol Brief Interventions in Scotland’ and ‘Financial incentives for Alcohol Brief Interventions in Primary Care in Scotland’ discuss challenges relating to the central role that GPs can play in raising the sensitive issue of alcohol use with patients to prevent and reduce harms, and the role that incentives such as financial payments and sufficient support for training for primary care staff can play in ensuring effective interventions.
