The effect of computerized tailored brief advice on at-risk drinking in subcritically injured trauma patients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

One-third of injured patients treated in the emergency department (ED) have an alcohol use disorder (AUD). Few are screened and receive counseling because ED staff have little time for additional tasks. We hypothesized that computer technology can screen and provide an intervention that reduces at-risk drinking (British Medical Association criteria) in injured ED patients.
