What is a Resource Centre?

A Resource Centre is a freely accessible platform, designed for healthcare professionals, that aims to increase clinical knowledge in a specific medical specialty by disseminating important new research and clinical developments more broadly.

Resource Centres are all independently editorially controlled, provided in collaboration with established medical journals, hosted and managed by Elsevier, and funded by educational grants from societies and other organizations, such as medical or pharmaceutical companies.

Progress in Mind

Focus on Alcohol Use Disorders Resource Centre

The Elsevier Progress in Mind: Focus on Alcohol Use Disorders Resource Centre will examine various topics related to alcohol use disorders (AUDs). Over the course of 1 year, one particular theme will be highlighted monthly, with the goal of increasing awareness from a general practice, psychiatric, and public health point of view.

To achieve this goal, the newest and most relevant scientific publications, video vignettes, and commentary from experts will be freely available on the Resource Centre. Examples of monthly topics include: the relationship between alcohol and hypertension; the societal burden of AUDs; and putative new treatments for patients with AUD. Elsevier aims to provide a comprehensive, educational space in which to explore the many facets of AUDs, in order to improve the identification of, and care for, patients with this brain disorder.

Topics on the Progress in Mind Resource Centre:

  • Burden of Disease
  • Neurobiology of alcohol use disorders
