NICE guidance on ‘Preventing the development
of hazardous and harmful drinking'

In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), an independent organization responsible for providing guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating ill health, has published national guidance on ‘Prevention of Alcohol Use Disorders in Adults and Young People’. The Programme Development Group (PDG) that developed the guidance was chaired by INEBRIA member Eileen Kaner and the PDG included two other INEBRIA members, Jim McCambridge and Nick Heather. Several recommendations in this guidance are concerned with screening and brief intervention and it is hoped that these will have a beneficial effect on the quality and quantity of SBI activity in the UK. To download a pdf of the full guidance document, visit http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/PH24 There are 12 Recommendations in the document, 7 of which concern screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment.
