Join Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network’s behavioral health team for a free in-person training session on ways to reduce the burden of unhealthy alcohol use on your patients and practice.
Physicians, nurses, social workers and other primary care staff.
Alcohol use impacts your patients’ health and costs our health care system a significant amount. Unhealthy alcohol use can cause the development or deterioration of many health conditions, and make chronic condition management more complex. While some patients can make changes on their own with appropriate guidance from a health care provider, other patients need to be referred to specialty care. In this session we will:
- Discuss best practices for assessing patients’ alcohol use
- Explore alcohol screening tools that can help determine the level of intervention needed for patients
- Learn a framework for delivering brief interventions to help patients reduce their alcohol consumption
