Abstract

Alcohol-screening questionnaires have
been found to be effective in the early
detection of risky drinking but are rarely
used by clinicians in primary care.
As research agenda tend not to seek
the perspectives of patients and general
practitioners (GPs), the best way to
address the barriers to implementation
is unclear. Contemporary research to
explore patient beliefs and attitudes
towards alcohol enquiry by GPs is
needed.
