Developing and evaluating complex interventions to improve the uptake of evidence-based national public health and clinical guidance

Background

This project focuses on the adoption of the NICE Quality Standards on alcohol misuse to explore how complex public health interventions are implemented locally.

Summary

This project aims to develop and evaluate complex interventions to improve the uptake of evidence based national public health and clinical guidance. It seeks to improve the health of the people living in south London through increasing the uptake of cost effective disease prevention and health care guidance. In the first two years the understanding of, agreement with, and adherence to national guidance (NICE appraisals, clinical guidelines, public health guidance and clinical standards) supporting the prevention and treatment of alcohol related disorders will be assessed. Through a process of coproduction current gaps in implementation of the guidance will be identified, solutions prioritised and a range of interventions designed, delivered and evaluated.
