The EMCDDA is launching today a new Prevention toolkit, bringing together all of its key prevention-related materials to date. Part of the agency’s toolkit series, this new resource is aimed at anyone involved in shaping decisions, opinions and policies in Europe in the science-based prevention of substance use. The toolkit is centred around four key existing prevention resources, all brought together in a one-stop-shop for easy access:
- European Prevention Curriculum (EUPC) — a training programme designed to professionalise those working in the field of prevention.
- Xchange prevention registry — an online registry of evaluated prevention interventions.
- Best practice evidence database — a repository of the latest evidence on drug-related interventions, including prevention.
- Healthy Nightlife Toolkit — an international initiative focusing on the reduction of harm from alcohol and drug use among young people in the nightlife setting.
The toolkit also provides links to other useful resources, including an introduction to basic prevention concepts and forms.
