Alcohol Treatment Matrix

Thursday, 03 April 2014 09:11

An innovative way of presenting evidence on alcohol treatment has been praised by several BSG members - the 'Go to Matrix' which presents a lot of clinical information in a clear way:

The Alcohol Treatment Matrix is concerned with the treatment of alcohol-related problems among adults (another deals with drug-related problems). It maps the treatment universe and for each sub-territory (a cell) lists the most important UK-relevant research and guidance. Across the top, columns move from specific interventions through how their impacts are affected by the widening contexts of practitioners, management, the organisation, and whole local area treatment systems. Down the rows are the major intervention types implemented at these levels. Inside each cell is our pick of the most important documents relevant to the impact of that intervention type at that contextual level. Visit the matrices page for articles, presentations, and a video explaining their genesis and construction.
