Summary:
NHS Health Scotland has been tasked by the Scottish Government to lead the evaluation of Scotland's alcohol strategy through the Monitoring and Evaluating Scotland’s Alcohol Strategy (MESAS) work programme. There is a commitment to providing annual reports from MESAS and in March 2011 the first annual report (the baseline report) was published.

The current report is the second annual report and provides an update of Scotland’s alcohol strategy, the evaluation plan and the analyses of price, consumption, affordability and alcohol-related harms detailed in the baseline report. Additionally, this report presents findings from the evaluation of the implementation of Alcohol Brief Interventions (ABIs) in selected settings.

Summary:
This review focuses on the effectiveness of interventions to support parents, their infants and children in the early years (pregnancy to 5 years). The evidence overview was produced in conjunction with the development of the outcomes framework to inform the activities of the National Parenting Strategy (NPS).

The outcomes framework is being developed to support the NPS to focus on the key results we want to achieve in Scotland. Work so far has identified the national, long-term and medium-term outcomes for the NPS and these are illustrated in the ‘strategic logic model’. It is important to note that this framework is a working draft and will be further developed and refined as part of this ongoing piece of work.

This process is being supported by the Evaluation Team and Evidence for Action Team at NHS Health Scotland.

Summary:
The Review of equality health data needs in Scotland (2012) was commissioned to meet recommendation 74 of the ‘Equally Well’ implementation plan (external website).

Health data needs were reviewed for gender, ethnicity, age, disability, religion and belief, sexual orientation and transgender identity. A comprehensive audit of routinely available Scottish data sources was undertaken.

The review makes recommendations for data development for improving individual care at the point of delivery, and for providing aggregate analyses of prevalence, access, experience and outcomes, in order to reduce health inequalities.

Summary:
This Briefing Note forms one part of an evaluation of the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives (SCHWL) which works with employers to enable them to understand, protect and improve the health of their employees and to support those with health problems who have re-entered work to remain in work.

The evaluation seeks to assess the impact of services that are provided to support employers and the Healthy Working Lives (HWL) award programme by identifying changes in their policies, procedures, behaviours and organisational performance.

This Briefing Note relates to the second phase of the case studies which intended to provide a snapshot of the experiences of employers being supported by the SCHWL. This report draws on the phase 2 interviews. It provides an update position and where appropriate and highlights any issues with implications for the design and delivery of SCHWL services.

Appendix 3 (separate document) updates the position for each of the individual case study organisations.

Summary:
This report forms the final part of an evaluation of the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives (SCHWL) which works with employers to enable them to understand, protect and improve the health of their employees and to support those with health problems who have re-entered work to remain in work.

The evaluation seeks to assess the impact of services that are provided to support employers and the Healthy Working Lives (HWL) award programme by identifying changes in their policies, procedures, behaviours and organisational performance. Building on the initial Theory of Change (ToC) published in June 2010, a three-tier evaluation strategy of an e-survey, telephone survey and in-depth case studies was completed.

This Final Report draws together the findings from each aspect of the study and reflects on the learning for future service development. The authors make a series of recommendations which relate to specific aspects of the SCHWL's activities. Adopting these recommendations would help the SCHWL to deliver on the long term goals set out in the original ToC.
