The manual “BRIEF: Integrated brief interventions for noncommunicable disease risk factors in primary care” developed by the WHO European Office for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases (NCD Office) is an innovative toolkit for health professionals and decision-makers. The uptake of these interventions in the WHO European Region remains low, and the manual aims to change this situation.

The event includes a webinar – 15 November 2022 09:30 – 11:00 CET – to launch the manual and is opened to all participants over the world.

This will be followed by expert sessions for the Member States and experts.

Wineke Remijnse, EFAD Executive Director, will be on the panel to discuss the role and competencies of different specialists in primary care for brief intervention delivery.
