Examples of EDPQS use in this country

As part of the Expert strand on substance abuse prevention (ESSAP) network, in 2012, colleagues from Amsterdam (represented by Johan Osté and Wilco Schilthuis), Eindhoven (represented by Janine Cosijn) and Rotterdam (represented by Denis S. Wiering) used the EDPQS as a framework to review their local drug prevention strategies and policies. For further information, see the Examples of use page.

Judith Noijen, working at Jellinek prevention in Amsterdam, led a project to develop Good Practice Standards for interventions in nightlife settings across Europe. This project developed the EDPQS further with specific considerations concerning this setting. More information about this project can be found in the “Example projects” document in EDPQS Toolkit 4.
