Alcohol prevention and evaluation in the era of evidence based practice - the need for a systemic approach to evaluation
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Criminology.

Abstract [en]

AIMS - This article focuses on the shortcomings of experimental outcome evaluations. MATERIAL - The study uses two studies of the alcohol prevention program Prime for Life (PFL) to illustrate problems associated with a ‘one dimensional’ goal focus and how implementation may affect the efficiency of an intervention. RESULTS - As evidence based practice often fails to acknowledge the importance of context and implementation quality in its quest to find ‘what works’, it is argued in the article that a wider perspective on efficiency is needed in evaluations of alcohol prevention. CONSLUSIONS - To be able to find out what works and during what circumstances, evaluators need to look for a wider set of traits that constitute effective interventions.
