European Collaborating Centres in Addiction Studies (ECCAS)

Papers relating to St George's, University of London involvement with the European Collaborating Centres in Addiction Studies.

Background:
Although formally named only in 1992, ECCAS was established in 1988/1989. Its origins and subsequent development can be traced back to discussions, held with officers of the European Commission in 1987/1988, identifying the need for a collaborative study to investigate the treatment of opiate addiction, using the substitute drug methadone, for the following reasons:

1 . The existence of wide differences in treatment regimes for opiate dependent individuals throughout the European Union. These differences were fuelled by controversy surrounding the side-effects of methadone, its abuse liability and dependence potential.

  1. The absence of sufficiently large samples.
  2. Differences in culture and drug legislation in Europe.

To carry out a study of this magnitude it was further understood that the research group would, in the first instance, need to develop standardised instruments, capable of collecting data from ten European countries.

Over the next three years ECCAS continued to hold discussions with the European Commission and finally in 1991 a contract was signed for the first Multi Centre Study in Europe to investigate 'Methadone Substitution Therapy and its Impact on HIV Risk Behaviours’.

After this first collaborative piece of work, ECCAS began welcoming new members to its growing group, developing other areas of interest such as training/education, and providing an environment in which members could discuss with colleagues across Europe a range of issues such as research, education and clinical treatment protocols. With an already established code of practice, ECCAS formalised its constitution at its 3rd Annual Assembly in Paris, France in April 1995.

Croydon Alcohol Interventions Project

Contains papers from the Croydon Alcohol Interventions Project.

Set up in c.2008 through social inclusion funding, the aim of the project was to develop a programme of training on screening and brief interventions on alcohol for staff in Accident & Emergency settings at the Mayday Hospital, including the minor injuries unit and relevant mental health wards at the Bethlem Royal Hospital as used by Croydon residents; GP practices and health care staff.

The main activities of the project were as follows:

· To identify, assess, and gather data on the training needs of key health staff in GP Surgeries, Accident and Emergency/Minor Injuries Unit and Mental Health inpatient wards at Mayday Hospital.

· To deliver appropriate training packages and support for health professionals specified above on brief interventions and screening for people at risk from alcohol harm.

· To develop knowledge of the impact of alcohol upon specific diseases and specialities, such as pregnancy, liver disease, violence, and accidents

· To advise on appropriate tools and other resources for use in screening in a variety of settings, including the prioritising of medical and psychosocial problems associated with alcohol misuse.

· To build capacity for local training to be undertaken within Croydon’s Health structures.

With increased identification of alcohol misuse and the delivery of brief interventions for alcohol users within GP practices, A & E and wards, it was anticipated that this would have an impact on the workflow within A&E.
