The Content and Design of Alcohol Brief Intervention Training for Practitioners

Funded by Alcohol Research UK.

Research indicates that patients who are drinking alcohol at a risky or harmful level can reduce their drinking if health professionals identify their consumption and engage them in short, structured conversations about it (brief interventions – ‘BI’s). The provision of adequate training for health professionals is considered one important factor in enabling routine delivery of BIs. In research trials, the nature of such training has varied widely. This project sought to synthesise what training has been previously provided in brief intervention trials.
