WP 6 - Assessment tool - implementation of IBIs

Lead by Emmanuele Scafato - Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS), Italy

Within the Framework of the 24-country European platform of the PHEPA Project (Primary Health Care European Project on Alcohol), an assessment tool to describe the available services for the management of hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption on the primary health sector and its mapping across the PHEPA countries was previously developed. The aim of this process was to identify the available infrastructures and also the deficiencies or areas that need further work and strengthening, both at the country and at the European level.

The objectives of WP6 were to formalise, operationalise and test the PHEPA assessment tool, in order to produce an instrument that can be used by countries to assess the implementation and the extent of identification and brief interventions (IBIs) for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption throughout Primary Health Care settings.

Among the objectives to be reached were the identification of the 'state-of-the-art' in each country, and gaps or areas in the country in need of further work and strengthening; as well as to monitor the adequacy of IBI programmes for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption, in order to provide recommendations to improve and optimise delivery of health care interventions.

In summary, this work package collected all the elements necessary for the ODHIN research group to:

  • provide a baseline measurement of services for managing hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption, identifying areas where services may require development or strengthening;
  • provide a mechanism for monitoring service provision over time;
  • allow sharing of information and examples of practice between countries and regions;
  • provide a mechanism for coalitions or partnerships to discuss and have a shared view on services for managing hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption.

The collection of information included all that required for effective dissemination of brief interventions within a health care systems perspective, including the domains of organisation of health care, support for providing brief interventions, availability of brief interventions, provision of effective brief interventions by health care providers and uptake of effective brief interventions by the general population.

The final tool documented the current status of brief interventions in each of the partner countries, identifying strengths and limitations or barriers in the main health care system domains.
