ODHIN: Optimizing delivery of health care interventions

ODHIN aims to establish links between scientific findings and everyday clinical practice for identification and brief intervention programmes for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption in primary health care settings in five ways.

  1. A series of systematic reviews investigating the impact of different behavioural, organisational, and financial strategies in changing provider behaviour across a range of clinical lifestyle interventions.
  2. Updating the knowledge base of potential barriers and facilitators to implementing identification and brief intervention programmes.
  3. Undertaking modelling studies to test the impact of different identification and brief intervention approaches on changes in alcohol consumption and the resulting impacts on healthcare costs and health-related quality of life.
  4. A stepped cluster randomised controlled trial to test the incremental effect of strategies that raise awareness, insight, and acceptance of performance, of identification and brief intervention programmes and that improve acceptance, change and maintenance of implementation with financial and organisational strategies.
  5. Assessing the extent of current provision of clinical practice for identification and brief intervention programmes for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption in primary healthcare settings.
