At a recent meeting of the NWRDATF Prevention & Education Subgroup (pictured above), Planet Youth local implementation group from Galway made a presentation on an evidence based primary prevention model, developed by researchers, community workers and policy makers in Iceland. The model’s whole population approach offers an opportunity to improve health outcomes for young people in many areas of their lives. The model relies on the data derived from biennial cross sectional surveys that were conducted using the Planet Youth Questionnaire.

The model is founded upon three pillars: Evidence based practice, Using a community based approach and creating and maintaining a dialogue between research policy and practice.
