The National Prevention Science Coalition (NPSC) edited a representative statement answering “What is Prevention Science”, to reflect the current thinking in the field. It had been endorsed by EUSPR as by many other organisations. Recently NPSC suggested a subtle change which we also endorsed, content with this much needed nuance. Specifically, rather than referring to substance misuse or abuse, we are using the convention, Substance Use Disorder (SUD), which subsumes all aspects of substance use that are problematic.
EUSPR invites its members to post this statement on your website to ensure that we are all uniformly representing the essence and value of prevention science.
Culture of Prevention, a difficult concept to define but important to protect Public Health. If we have learned nothing else from COVID, prevention should be paramount. Springer recently sent a table of contents alert for Prevention Science Volume 22, Issue 1, now available online. It contains a Special Section: Promoting a Culture of Prevention: An International Perspective.
Follow this link: Volume 22, Issue 1 . Additionally you can go to the APSI Int’l website https://www.apsintl.org/previous-talks-recordings to hear comments of Craig PoVey and Claudia Zundel on the topic.

Law enforcement officers (LEOs) have an important role in preventing crime and problems related to substance use. They can help create safer environments, like nightlife areas and schools, by enforcing the law and working to improve the safety of these areas. LEOs should also work with other prevention professionals to give young people the skills they need to make good decisions and assure safe and nurturing spaces for their development. This Position Paper by the EUSPR and the EU-funded project Frontline-POLITEIA discusses the do’s and don’ts for law enforcement officers (LEO) when they engage in the prevention of harmful behaviours.
