short, structured conversation about alcohol consumption with an individual, in a non-confrontational way, to motivate and support the individual to think about and/or plan a change in their drinking behaviour in order to reduce their alcohol consumption and/or their risk of harm. Alcohol Brief interventions (BI) are low in cost and have proven to be effective across the spectrum of alcohol problems. There have been numerous randomized clinical trials of brief interventions in a variety of health settings, finding that BI were often as effective as more extensive treatments (Bien et al, 1993; Kahan et al, 1995; Wilk et al, 1997; Babor and Higgins-Biddle, 2001; Kaner et al, 2007). Despite the evidence for their usefulness, however, brief interventions for alcohol-related problems have not yet been widely implemented in Portugal primary care settings. The purpose of this course is to raise awareness for the prevention of alcohol problems, identify the difficulties in the clinical setting and provide intervention protocols with ABI.

Objectives: understanding what an ABI is, the evidence base; exploring barriers to delivering brief interventions; updating knowledge of drinking guidelines and how to calculate units of alcohol; updating knowledge of local and national services individuals can be referred; practicing techniques to develop confidence in delivering a brief intervention including how to: - open a conversation about alcohol with the individual and use appropriate screening tools to assess risk and feedback relevant information to individuals about the potential effects of drinking on their health and wellbeing, close the conversation and how to signpost or refer individuals on to other services, if appropriate.

The growth pattern and the nutritional status are considered to be important children's and teenagers' health indicators, being anthropometry the best method to evaluate its process of body growth and of characterization of its nutritional status, being used in clinical practice and epidemiologic studies, even of great dimension. A correct anthropometric evaluation and interpretation of the values implicates the use of methodologies, equipments and measuring techniques with very high strictness and internationally accepted, and a proper preparation of healthcare professionals or others who claim to be evaluators. Taking this into consideration, the growth patterns of the child from 0-18 years old will be approached based on the biological determinants and environmental factors; methodologies, human techniques and requirements, national and internationally recommended anthropometric evaluation environmental and materials will be discussed; the interpretation of the measuring values based on the three reference models made public nowadays will be discussed; the perception of the nutritional status of the child through active methodologies of participation will be critically analyzed.

Objectives: To deeply think about children's and teenagers' growth pattern and about the importance of anthropometry in the evaluation of growth, nutritional status and diagnostics of children's and teenagers' over weight; debate correct methodologies and techniques of evaluation of the anthropometric measures (weight, height, perimeters); analyze the reference criteria (IOTF, OMS, CDC) classify the nutritional status; and train

skills concerning evaluation and classification of the nutritional status.

The determinants of health are multiple, interactive, layered, personal, collective and complex. In addition, these determinants are not restricted to national borders. There is, however, a glaring paucity of research into the collective or macro-determinants of health, in particular, the political and policy context of health and disease. In this workshop we will review the current literature in this field from a health and human rights perspective. A discussion will take place that addresses: 1. the available datasets that can be used to carry out such research, 2. the appropriate methodological approach that researchers should take and 3. explicit examples of current research will be given and discussed including a step-by-step instruction of how to complete multi-level analysis. In closing we will address important issues where policy makers should place their attention and speak about challenges in the field and suggestions for future research. The main goals of the workshop are to ensure that participants: Gain insight with the extent to which country characteristics can influence population health; Identify how health and human rights are empirically connected; Become familiar with multi-level modeling; Identify the value of natural policy experiments; Provide awareness to policy makers on current global health concerns relating to the impact of place on health.
