New BI Publications
These studies are discussed on the Google group which also has information on a number of other studies via postings from the Effectiveness bank.
New Peer-Reviewed Publication: Results of the Multi-Million SIPS Primary Care Trial in England in BMJ.
There has been considerable discussion in SBI circles of the SIPS Study, a £4 million study applying brief intervention approaches in three key settings. The primary care results have just been published in the BMJ. In addition to the BMJ article, you can read considerable discussion of this on the BMJ website, on the INEBRIA Google Group (if you're interested in SBI, you should definitely check this out) and on the Alcohol IBA blog. You can also read a simplified form in the Findings bulletin.
A new book edited and contributed to by INEBRIA members has been released to help practicing physicians to address alcohol issues. With specific focus on brief assessment, comorbidity, confidentiality, implementation, making referrals, alcohol and pain, talking about lower risk drinking and much more, it gathers all of this information together in one place. It will be very helpful for those seeking to deliver or support delivery of SBI in primary care settings.
You can access the book via this link (including as an e-book available for immediate download).
