The SCALA Study changes from a 2-arm to a 4-arm design

The project has taken the decision jointly to change the SCALA study design from 2 to 4 study arms, in order to be able to give more precise information about what works (and what doesn't) in increasing screening and brief interventions in primary care for alcohol and co-morbid depression.

Welcome to the SCALA Newsletter

The first edition of the SCALA newsletter (Nov 2018) includes information on the launching of the Comunity Advisory Boards in Bogotá, Lima and Mexico City, as well as news on research in the screening and brief intervention (SBI) and alcohol fields.

The SCALA project started at the beginning of December 2017, and will run for four years (ending on 30 November 2021), with the first action-packed year seeing the development of whole-project plans, tailoring of the SCALA intervention package and set-up of the implementation study in 3 Latin American locations.
