    Objectives: It is recommended that all patients clerked during A&E assessment should be asked for alcohol consumption history and positive cases should be identified at same time. This study explored about percentage of patients who are missed for alcohol consumption history and indirectly do not get support for alcohol cut-down. We suggested at the end of this Audit, that old AUDIT-C forms printed in A/E clerking forms should be replaced by new AUDIT C forms, and should be filled by patients rather than junior doctors. Design: We handed over newly printed AUDIT C forms to admitted patients in various wards of hospital and once returned to us we compared the alcohol consumption score with the score mentioned in old AUDIT-C forms which are part of A/E clerking forms. Setting • 06 wards in Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow.. View More»
