Optimising Delivery of Healthcare Interventions (ODHIN)

ODHIN (Optimising Delivery of Healthcare Interventions) is an EU-wide project focusing on understanding how best to translate the results of clinical research into every day Primary Health Care. The project is using screening and brief interventions (SBI) for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption, within a Primary Health Care context, as a case study to investigate this transition.

ScHARR are heading Work Package 3, which concentrates on modelling the impact of several SBI strategies in a number of EU countries. We are working closely with colleagues in The Netherlands, Italy and Poland to adapt the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model to each of these countries to allow us to to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of SBI programs within different national contexts.
