Alcohol Use Disorders (148) Full compilation and an invitation to do a qualitative analysis

21 March, 2024

Dear HIFA colleagues,

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to this wonderful discussion.

We have compiled all the messages into a single document for you here (236 pages):

We would now like to invite expressions of interest from HIFA members who may like to undertake a qualitative analysis of the discussion. This might be a good project for a student, supervised by your lecturer/university. It could also lead to a short paper, thereby giving you added visibility.

The aim would be to compile a short document with the key points categorised under subheadings (ie Q1,2,3,4,5 and Other). In past discussions the HIFA approach has been to select and organise verbatim text, but we're open to the possibility of doing things differently. If you're interested, please let us know by Friday 5th April:

Acknowledgement: We are grateful for sponsorship for this project from the Ulrich and Ruth Frank Foundation for International Health. To learn more about this organization, check out, where you can access free courses on addiction, public health, medicine, and other health science topics.

Many thanks, Neil
