In this study we investigate whether an evidence-based education in 4 weeks after surgery can have the same positive effect in cases where the surgery is acute and an alcohol free period not is possible before the surgery, focusing on ankle fractures. Scand-Ankle is a Nordic project involving about 70 patients and conducted by orthopedic surgeons and alcohol researchers from Sweden, Denmark and Norway. The results, including cost effectiveness are being analyzed.

WHO-CC is involved in different project in Region Skåne. One concerns the implementation of smoke-free and alcohol-free operation. Swedish and Danish co studies have shown that including smoking stop or alcohol stop before surgery halves complications of the surgery. In this project the new model for fast track implementation will be used. WHO-CC shall also contribute to the work of the project Smokefree Skåne by 2025.
