ODHIN will use the implementation of identification and brief intervention programmes (IBI) for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption in primary health care (PHC) as a case study to better understand how to translate the results of clinical research into every day practice. Systematic reviews investigating the impact of different behavioural, organisational and financial strategies in changing provider behaviour across a range of clinical lifestyle interventions will be undertaken. A stepped cluster randomised controlled trial will test the incremental effect of strategies. ODHIN will develop a clinical evidence-based database on effective and cost-effective IBI measures for use in PHC.
