The Alcohol Clinical Training (ACT) Project was established by the Boston Medical Center and Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health to disseminate the latest research on alcohol and teach pragmatic clinical skills to screen and conduct brief intervention for alcohol problems.

The project's two distinct components, which both integrated data on health disparities, included:

Alcohol Screening and
Brief Intervention Curriculum

A free online curriculum for generalist clinicians, educators, and trainees that teaches skills for addressing alcohol problems in primary care settings (including screening and brief intervention), emphasizing cross-cultural efficacy

Alcohol and Health: Current Evidence

A free online newsletter that summarized the latest clinically relevant research on alcohol and health

Note: With support from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the newsletter continues to be published, includes coverage of other drugs, and is now known as Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Health: Current Evidence.

The below implementation and evaluation report (divided into separate links to facilitate downloadability) summarizes the first 3 years of the Project and describes "next steps."
