To Receive a Certificate for This Activity:
Alcohol misuse is a prevalent disorder affecting all age groups from adolescents to older adults. Misuse may be characterized by risky and hazardous drinking as well as heavy drinking episodes. More than 85,000 deaths per year are attributed to alcohol misuse in the United States. Identified misuse is often treated by behavioral counseling involving multiple interventions and patient education.
In 2011, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) commissioned a systematic review of published studies to study the comparative effectiveness of screening followed by behavioral counseling, with or without referral, for alcohol misuse in primary care settings. This monograph summarizes the key findings of the review and poses potential applications to clinical practice.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
- Compare the types of screening tools and their use in populations such as adults, college students and pregnant women
- Evaluate the effectiveness of behavioral interventions (all types) among young adults and college students, older adults and pregnant women
- Apply the findings of screening, counseling and referral in primary care settings
This CME activity is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists and nurses.
