Associated to the scholarship:13/16080-3 - Intervention with families, users of alcohol and alcohol plus other drugs: a study community, BP.DR


Clinical trials are naturally complex and complicated. In the context of primary care is a major challenge because the control variable is very difficult. In addition, in this study the prpoposta to work with inserted alcohol users in this context and often without the perception of abuse even more difficult. However, it is essential for the conduct of clinical trials for this population, since it is not always appropriate to transfer treatments or interventions that are successful in a hospital environment for the community. The question seems to be more real when talking about drug abuse in the community where access to all drugs can be facilitated and hospital treatment, which provides that distanciamente, can influence the positive response in some interventions or treatments. According to Howard (1993) and Drummond et al. (2009), there is a clear need for pragmatic randomized clinical trials of brief interventions. The pragmatic randomized trials are auqeles that seek to describe the effectiveness of intervention in the most realistic conditions possible everyday health practices actions, turning more to the decision problems and mode of action (Coutinho, HUF, Baloch, 2003). This study included the primary users of alcohol in health that have an AUDIT with scores e 7, they were randomized for type cluster randomization and were evaluated, control group and intervention group, one month and sesis months after the first contact. Establishing up the BI protocol due to perceived lack of more detailed descriptions of how brief interventions are carried out in clinical studies (Heather, 1995). Given these peculiarities and difficulties encountered in the collection phase, which ends in November this year, we require a training period abroad in order to: 1) to discuss the project with data presentation, for suggestions to Add sample; 2) Get advice on how to discuss and expose the text on the problems encountered; 3) To confirm or refute the hypothesis of cross checking the applications of the three measures (map, AUDIT, interviews with patients and families); 4) To analyze the interviews of the participants; 5) Tip the comprehensive review material collected; 6) To write the main article of the thesis; 7) To write an article about alcohol use in patients in primary care. On the stage of the analysis period it is expected that the data is analyzed by statistical software Stata, version 13.0 for quantitative data and Alceste for qualitative analysis
