Continued education of professionals is a major factor for service improvement and evidence-based good practice. This project explores the strategies used for this purpose across countries (CET = continued education and training in the substance abuse field). A structured questionnaire was circulated internationally by an expert committee of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. Reports from 11 countries were collected in 2005. The following review is based on these reports and structured according to the questionnaire (questions in italics). The authors of the reports are listed in the acknowledgements. The countries are Australia, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland, and the United States. As a result of this project, an international think tank on continued education and training was established and is briefly described. (Contains 1 table.)
