Patients' acceptance of SNAP assessment: An exploration

Abstract

We previously described in Australian
Family Physician a survey experiment
that demonstrated patients’ acceptance
of alcohol enquiry from their general
practitioners (GPs) varied markedly
depending on the reason for the initial
presentation.
A further qualitative study
identified that the acceptability of these
discussions was influenced by their
perceived relevance. For many patients, this
‘was determined by whether the presenting
complaint was seen to be an issue affected
by alcohol drinking’.
Is this finding isolated to assessment
of drinking, or does it apply to other SNAP
(smoking, nutrition, alcohol, physical
activity) risk factors?
