Screening and Brief Alcohol Intervention (SBI) materialsScreening and Brief Alcohol Intervention (SBI) materials
Professor Eileen Kaner, colleagues from Gateshead Primary Care Trust and Northumbria University have developed a programme of screening and brief alcohol intervention (SBI) materials in partnership with local general practices.
The brief intervention programme called 'How much is too much?' has been highlighted in national guidance on developing local programmes of health improvement and is increasingly being used by a wide range of clinicians from across the UK and abroad. The development of this brief intervention programme was made possible by a research grant from Sunderland Teaching Primary Care Trust.
These materials are available for use, free of charge, by primary care professionals. The original source of the materials should be acknowledged.
CV Decide materialsCV Decide materials
CV Decide is a risk communication and shared decision-making tool embedded within EMIS that can help you to communicate the risks and benefits of interventions to reduce cardiovascular risk in your patients.
CV Decide was developed with funding from South of Tyne and Wear, and with considerable input from clinicians and patients across the three PCTs. Pilot studies have shown that the tool is intuitive to use, felt to be valuable by both patients and clinicians, and helps patients make decisions on risk reduction that are right for them.
CV Decide is developed in the spirit of shared decision making (SDM), defined as an approach where clinicians and patients make decisions together using the best available evidence.
