Description

This report describes the development and implementation of this tool, which is designed to help health professionals identify and manage older adults at risk of alcohol-related harm. 

The report details the training provided to health professionals on the use of this enhanced algorithm. Alcohol use by older adults contributes to the burden of disease and injury in New Zealand and should be addressed.
