Abstract

More critically ill patients have acute drinking problems than chronic problems with alcohol dependence. A hospitalization offers an opportunity for nurses to perform a brief assessment and initiate a simple intervention to advise patients to reduce their drinking. A few minutes of advice may make a long-term difference in a patient's health.
