We recently demonstrated the efficacy of the telehealth QuikFix risk-targeted brief intervention for reducing alcohol use among young people with alcohol-related injuries or illnesses accessing support services in the Brisbane Night-time (Hides et al., 2020). The overall aim of this study is to determine the clinical utility, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of the QuikFix risk-targeted brief intervention for reducing AOD use and related harm when delivered via telehealth by AOD workers in real-world clinical settings, with the support of a web-based program.
Public Health Relevance
If effective, the QuikFix eHealth intervention provides an easily disseminated and effective way of addressing the significant public health issue of alcohol use and related harm in young people.
