Alcohol-problem prevention research policy: the need for a phases research model.

Abstract

This paper describes the need and rationale for developing a phases model for guiding alcohol-problem prevention research. A phased approach to prevention research is consistent with such models developed for other health areas including heart disease, cancer, and drug testing. Such a model in alcohol prevention research can provide a means for (1) locating how far research has progressed along a continuum from basic or pre-intervention research to full implementation of preventive action, (2) identifying gaps in research, and (3) determining the level of empirical proof which exists for one or more prevention strategies prior to widespread dissemination.
