#UKalcohol discussion 11th June: alcohol in hospital settings

The planned pilot discussion is intended to cover the broad theme of addressing alcohol-related problems in hospital settings. A number of issues are being suggested as ‘discussion starters’:

·       What Alcohol Attributable Fractions (AAFs) are – and are they useful?

·       The shift from broad to narrow measures for AFFs

·       Chronic and acute admissions - how and why they are different 

·       Lags between changing consumption patterns and admissions rates

·       Alcohol Liaison Teams – are these impacting on admission figures?
