This article reports an investigation of three minimal interventions for potential problem drinkers in general hospital wards.
The interventions were :
(a) brief advice ; (b) the provision of health education literature ; (c) a combination of both the advice and literature.
One year after recruitment the mean levels of alcohol consumption and the number of alcohol-related problems reported by the cohort was significantly reduced.
These reductions were supported by reductions in the mean levels of GGT and AST, but not in mean MCV.
No statistically significant treatment effects were found.
The results are presented and implications for nursing are discussed.
