Key findings:
• There is sufficient evidence to support current optimism about the potential for alcohol IBA to be delivered in a range of health and non-health settings
• Online IBA models have potential to reach individuals who may not access health or support services.
• Organisational, professional and context- specific challenges impede implementation and, in particular, the sustainability of initiatives over the longer term
• Training has an important role to play in improving the knowledge and skills level of staff; however, on its own, it does not guarantee delivery of IBA
• Evaluation and monitoring should be built in to new initiatives to ensure appropriate use of resources and to promote a culture of learning from practice
