Professor Sir Ian Gilmore, Chair of UK Alcohol Health Alliance, commented:

"SMMGP has a proud history and has made a real difference to the standard of care for patients with problematic use of alcohol managed in primary care. The e-learning project is a welcome addition and I am delighted to be associated with it. The web-based material is evidence-based, well referenced and presented in a way that makes it easy to learn. I can see real value in this resource for colleagues in primary, secondary and social care - indeed wherever patients with alcohol problems are presenting - and I wish it every success."

Rosanna O'Connor, Director or Alcohol, Drugs and Tobacco Division at Public Health England says:

"Around one in five adults is incurring some level of health risk from their use of alcohol. Non-dependent, as well as dependent alcohol misuse, impacts greatly on people's health. It contributes significantly to over 60 conditions including cardiovascular diseases, depression, liver disease and some cancers. Primary care and other community health services have a key role to play in identifying where patients' use of alcohol may be damaging their health and helping them to reduce their drinking and thereby, reduce the risk of further ill-health. The launch of this new course is timely and PHE is pleased to have been involved in its development."

This e-learning module is an introduction to the Advanced Certificate in Community Management of Alcohol Use Disorders which aims to provide advanced learning for generalist and specialist primary care practitioners who work with people who have developed problems with alcohol.
