A guiding framework for education and training in screening and brief intervention for problem alcohol use for nurses and midwives in acute, primary care and community care settings
Office of the Nursing and Midwifery Service Director
The purpose of early intervention programmes is to detect high risk and harmful drinking in individuals, before or shortly after the early signs of alcohol related problems. This action led to the decision by the Health Service Executive (HSE) former Population Health Directorate to designate “Towards a Framework for Implementing Evidence Based Alcohol Interventions” as one of its transformation projects. The aim of this project is to help establish routine screening, data collection and appropriate interventions emanating from the acute hospital sector. The initial focus is on screening and brief intervention (SBI) in emergency departments for harmful and hazardous alcohol use. Screening occurs on a daily basis in health care settings.
