Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Drug use prevention research findings have been inconsistent. These inconsistencies can be related to study design and methodology. This chapter presents consensus recommendations developed by a group of prevention researchers for enhancing drug use prevention evaluation research. There was a high level of consensus agreement among participants which was reflected in recommendations related to modifying prevention approaches; integrating epidemiologic, etiologic and intervention research methods; and expanding prevention research utilization.
