2 Alex J Mitchell (2012) Some Definitions of Alcohol Problems Hazardous drinking – A pattern of alcohol consumption that increases someones risk of harm (WHO) Harmful drinking – A pattern of alcohol consumption that is causing mental or physical damage Alcohol dependence – A cluster of behavioural, cognitive and physiological factors that typically include a strong desire to drink alcohol and difficulties in controlling its use. Someone who is alcohol dependent may persist in drinking, despite harmful consequences. They will also give alcohol a higher priority than other activities and obligations. (DSM-IV) (American Psychiatric Association 2000) / (ICD-10) (World Health Organization 2007). Alcohol Use Disorder – Harmful use or alcohol dependence Alex J Mitchell (2012)

3 Magnitude of Problem Drinking 24% of adults are hazardous or harmful drinkers (7M) –Defined as scoring 8 or more on the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) [slide 16] ( McManus et al. 2009) 4% alcohol dependent (1M) (Drummond et al., 2005) 7% of hospital admissions (1M) (North West Public Health Observatory 2010) 40% of hospital presentations with AUD (of 10k screened in SIPS) Consumption doubled in adolescents in past 10 yrs 3 rd leading cause of disability in Europe Drummond DC, Oyefes, N, Phillips T et al.

6 Mitchell et al (2012) – Detection Meta-analysis Meta-analysis of studies involving 20,000 patients assessed for alcohol problems by medical staff GPs identified 40% of problem drinkers Hospital doctors identified 50% of problem drinkers Mental health specialists recognised 55% of problem drinkers. A&E clinicians detected 90% of alcohol intoxication Clinicians correctly recorded a diagnosis in the case- notes for only 1 in 3 people who had an alcohol problem Mitchell AJ, Meader N, Bird V, Rizzo M.

12 Barriers to Detection and Treatment Low rates of enquiry by clinicians Low use of validated tools lack of resources Lack of training Excess workload Poor attitudes to AUD Unclear responsibility Uncertainty re how to help Alex J Mitchell (2012)
