Where is the Evidence Leading Us in Our Approach to Alcohol? Edward P. Ehlinger, Director and Chief Health Officer Boyton Health Service - University of Minnesota

Despite numerous legislative and programmatic efforts, alcohol continues to take a huge toll on the physical, mental, and economic health of Minnesotans of all ages. Organizations and communities expend a great deal of time and resources in efforts to reduce the excessive use of alcohol, to prevent the negative consequences linked to alcohol, or to respond to the damage caused to individuals and/or the community by the irresponsible use of alcohol. Much research has been done on this issue and many programs and interventions have been implemented with the hope of curtailing this problem. However, the overall rate of high risk drinking has remained at unacceptable levels. This session will review the data on the major approaches that have been tried and critique why they may not have had a significant impact on the overall high-risk drinking rates. With a specific focus on the data highlighting the role that the price of alcohol, the marketing of alcohol, and the linkage of alcohol and sports have in perpetuating the problems of alcohol in our society, this session will discuss the potential of changing the way we frame the issue of excessive alcohol use from being an issue of adolescents and young adults that needs community attention to a societal issue that needs a community-wide approach of which adolescents and young adults are a critical component.

What’s Up with the SPF SIG? (MN Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant Minnesota Department of Human Services, SPF SIG Management Team

The Minnesota Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant (SPF SIG) project is in its second of five years of Federal funding. The SPF SIG, which is housed in the Department of Human Services Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division, is intended to build both State and community-level capacity to implement the SPF model.

All I Need is a Miracle: Using Your Evaluation Results in the Real World Ellie Church, South St. Paul School District Michelle Gerrard and Kristin Dillon, Wilder Research

Room: Swisshelm

Prevention Planning for Underage Drinking with the Minnesota Student Survey Anu Sharma, S & S Training and Consulting Jerry Evans, Evaluation Technical Assistance

Local data give local leaders information and knowledge with which to act. Using combined results of Minnesota Student Survey data from 12 Minnesota school districts that gave permission, we statistically identified risk and protective factors most influential in youth alcohol use. We will discuss how prevention leaders can adapt or replicate this model using local data, or combine these results with other qualitative and quantitative data to inform development of a logic model.

Today’s Tobacco Industry: Innovation in Response to Regulation Katie Engman, Ramsey Tobacco Coalition Betsy Brock, Association for NonsmokersMinnesota

The tobacco industry has mastered the art of innovation in response to regulation. The 1998 Tobacco Settlement Agreements were meant to limit tobacco advertising. However, since these settlements, the tobacco industry-advertising budget has doubled. The industry has also developed a slew of new products to avoid taxation and get around smoke-free laws.

Not What the Doctor Ordered

Empowering Youth to be Catalysts for Health

Rick Moldenhauer, MN Depart. of Human Services - Alcohol & Drug Abuse Division

Abuse of prescription medications is the fastest growing drug pattern in Minnesota. Abuse of pharmaceuticals brings with it additional dangers and rationalizations not found with illegal substances. This course will focus on three categories; opiates, anxiolytics and stimulant medication, giving patterns of use and symptoms of intoxication and withdrawal, and how they often present as unrelated medical and mental health issues. Room: Weidner

Prevention Burnout or Living What We Teach? The importance of building the capacity of your prevention team by promoting stress reduction strategies Cynthia Tri (RPC/Region 6), Parenting Resource Center

Work is often cited as a primary cause of stress. Working long hours in prevention as well as strained family relationships with spouses and children also lead to stress. However, there are ways to reduce the feeling of stress. Cynthia Tri conducted a qualitative research study that explored if a relationship exists between what stress reduction strategies social workers employ with their clients and what they practice themselves. The purpose of this research was to assess if social workers practice what they teach their clients. This is important as in the last decade there has been a considerable amount of talk about the importance of stress reduction and prevention. Come and learn how to build the capacity within your teams and the importance of professionals practicing stress reduction strategies. Room: Edelbrock

Developing Capacity for CommunityBased Prevention Leadership Jerry Evans, Evaluation Technical Assistance Anu Sharma, S & S Training and Consulting

styles and tasks for which they are especially suited. These results offer recommendations on leadership development for prevention professionals and funders that support them. Room Mitchell

The Importance of Using Reliable Data Jay Jaffee and Laura Hutton, Minnesota Department of Health

The SPF-SIG requires data-driven decision-making. In this age of the internet and electronic communication data is everywhere. One can find data that supports any position you wish to make. Unreliable data is often used to support decisions about behavior and policy affecting substance use in our communities. Those working to prevent substance abuse problems need to be credible and need to use reliable data to inform decision-making in their communities. Room: Weidner
