Work Package 7: Impact Assessment II

Description

To analyse the health-economic impact of parental alcohol problems, initially, the pertaining literature will be reviewed by means of a systematic search in electronic databases. Additionally, impact will be assessed through the analysis of data records (e.g. health and social reports, reports from insurance companies). A catalogue of key figures in the participating countries (e.g. physical and mental health, addictive behaviour, psycho-social development, framework and educational opportunities, socio-economic situation) will be developed for a harmonised and coherent monitoring of the health and social conditions of children and adolescents.

The impact of different prevention activities (setting-related and target-group specific) will be analysed.
Sources for this analysis will comprise European and country specific studies and pilot schemes. The effects of these prevention activities will be assessed on the basis of the following criteria: 

1. Structural framework of activities
2. Quality of processes
3. Results and effects
4. System-related, country specific evaluation (if data is available) level of activity (local,
regional, national), representative according to country and target-group 

Depending on the availability of data, criteria will be developed towards a uniform and coherent evaluation system for prevention activities. In addition, required data for cost-effectiveness-analyses of prevention activities will be described and a qualitative (or possibly quantitative) evaluation model will be developed in order to highlight the prevention potential in the different countries.
