Rapid Assessment and Response methode (RAR) voor problematisch middelengebruik in asielzoekerscentra

 2005 CVO & Trimbos-instituut

In recent years alternatives have been sought for traditional scientific research methods, which have proven expensive and time-consuming in terms of assessing and responding to public health problems. This has especially been the case in the field of illicit substance use health risks, where attempts were made to develop new assessment and response models. Financial resources necessary for traditional research are often hard to find. Many public health problems require a quicker response than traditional scientific research generally allows. This has led to the development of so-called Rapid Assessment and Response (RAR) approaches. CVO and the Trimbos Institute refined RAR and built a data management tool to make analysing and reporting easier and transparent to enable people who are not scientifically trained, to use RAR. This resulted in a manual to map problematic substance use quickly and accurately and generate priorities and ideas for interventions.
