Invitation to tender – Dry January evaluation 2019

We are inviting invitations from experienced evaluation teams to assess the impact of Alcohol Concern’s Dry January campaign 2019.  Full details are available here: Dry January 2019 – Invitation to tender. Dry January was first launched by Alcohol Concern in 2013.  It has since become a high profile, widely recognised national behaviour-change campaign. It is one of the best known ‘monthly abstinence’ campaigns globally.  The primary aim of Dry January is for participants to reset their relationship with alcohol. In particular, we are looking to increase participants’ desire – and ability – to better control their drinking. We are seeking an agency to conduct an evaluation of Dry January 2019 to answer key questions about the campaign’s impact, user-experiences and user motivation. The deadline for applications is 5th November.

Chronic pancreatitis (CP) may remain undiagnosed for years until patients exhibit manifestations, such as pain and exocrine or endocrine insufficiency. Some patients with CP develop serious complications, such as malignancy or peripancreatic fluid collections. Considering CP in at-risk patients such as those with a long-standing history of alcohol or tobacco use is key to establishing the diagnosis. Management involves reducing and eliminating exposures, dietary modification, treatment of pancreatic insufficiency, assessing for complications, and surveillance for neoplasia. The management of CP is often multidisciplinary i...
