4. Take Alcohol identification and brief advice (IBA) online training for primary care, hospital, community pharmacy and dental staff. IBA helps professionals to identify those individuals whose drinking might impact their health, now or in the future and to deliver simple, structured advice aimed at reducing this risk. Research indicates that, if 8 people with high-risk drinking receive IBA, one of them will reduce their drinking significantly.
Audit C is a set of questions used across the country by health and care professionals to standardise their approach to asking about Alcohol and identifying if a person might need support or advice around drinking. It’s very simple. Everyone is asked the first three questions, and depending on their score, another set of simple questions are asked. Using this questionnaire routinely helps to reduce stigma by treating all adults on an equal basis
