Abstract

Hazardous and harmful drinkers make up a significant percentage of A and E attendees, and brief interventions have been shown to reduce harm among this particular group. This paper evaluates a pilot project which introduced a screening and brief intervention programme within the A and E department. This project aimed to screen and offer brief interventions to attendees and to refer on to local alcohol services if required.
