Project structure

  • WP1 - Coordination + Management 
    • WP1 managed and coordinated the research group in order to achieve integration of the various research fields included in the Odhin project.
  • WP2 - Knowledge Base
    • WP2 used systematic reviews to identify effective strategies to disseminate and implement Identification and Brief Intervention (IBI) programmes in primary care settings, and to identify facilitating factors and barriers to effective implementation.
  • WP3 - Cost-effectiveness
    • This WP modelled the effectiveness of screening and brief interventions in the Netherlands, Poland and Italy, with a view to examining the  generalisability of interventions across the EU and the long-term cost-effectiveness of dissemination approaches studied in other Odhin work packages.
  • WP4 - Surveys 
    • WP4 provided a global overview through a survey protocol and semi-structured questionnaire, piloted in the project. The survey was designed to explore moderating factors to implementing Identification and Brief Intervention programmes and to compare attitudes and experiences in delivering IBI across Europe among important stakeholder groups.
  •  WP5 - Stepped-Cluster RCT
    • A number of factors were studied that might increase implementation of evidence-based methods of identification and brief intervention for excessive alcohol consumption in routine primary health care, through a stepped cluster RCT methodology.
  • WP6 - Assessment Tool
    • An instrument was developed for countries to assess the level of national implementation and the extent of identification and brief interventions (IBIs) for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption throughout Primary Health Care settings.
  • WP7 - Science to Policy
    • Completing the relay of information from science to policy, and increasing knowledge of how to optimize the delivery of IBI programmes, through decision- maker dialogues and accessible communication materials, and developing a strategy and tool kit on effective approaches to adopting Identification and Brief Intervention (IBI) into daily practice.
