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.

Mechanisms for the dissemination of appropriate evidence and information to relevant Health Service Executive (HSE) personnel will be established. With a comprehensive distribution strategy, it will be possible to assist the development of evidence based interventions within the acute hospital sector. This project will provide a framework for the appropriate response to problem alcohol use emanating from the acute hospital sector.
