Mental Health Implementation Network Project 3: high-level alcohol assertive outreach team (AAOT)


A small group of high impact service users with alcohol dependence and comorbid mental health and physical problems disproportionately account for the greatest use of acute hospital admissions and emergency department attendances.

This study supports the development of a newly commissioned service (i.e. AAOT) that engages high impact, high need service users in patient-led care. This evaluation aims to assess implementation and adherence of a new AAOT in Yorkshire and Humber against a high-quality service model previously assessed as being effective in randomised controlled trails. The main measures will consider alcohol consumption, hospital service use, patient, and clinical experience.
