Standard Practice

“not familiar with”

  • 87% reported no prior training in substance abuse
  • 18% routinely screen BAC
  • < 15% use questionnaires
  • intervention or referral is rare

(Danielson, Gentilello, et al, Archives of Surgery, 1999)

slide12
Trauma Recidivism
  • 5 year follow-up of 246 patients
    • 40% readmission rate
    • 20% mortality rate
    • 77% of deaths due to continuing substance abuse

(Sims, et al, J Trauma)

Do you think this patient will change his drinking or reduce his risk as a result of this conversation?

MOTIVATIONAL INTERVIEWING
  • No confrontation, labeling, stereotyping
  • Ask open-ended questions
  • Reflective listening to encourage talk about drinking
  • Offer information in a non-personal manner.
  • Make connection between drinking and ED visit
  • “What do you like about drinking?”
  • “What do you like less about drinking?”
hypothesis
Hypothesis

Alcohol interventions as a routine component

of trauma care will reduce subsequent

alcohol intake, and decrease the

rate of trauma recidivism

alcohol interventions in a trauma center
Alcohol Interventions in a Trauma Center
  • Study design
    • Harborview Medical Center, Seattle
    • October 1994 to November 1997
    • NIH sponsored RCT
    • patients screened with BAC and questionnaire
    • consent for follow-up only
    • randomized
      • 15 - 30 minute intervention plus follow-up letter
      • standard trauma care
follow up
Follow-up
  • Objective
    • Harborview ED records for one year after discharge
    • statewide database of all trauma admissions
    • police department records
    • Department of Licensing records (motor vehicle)
  • Self-report
    • 6 and 12 month patient interviews
    • corroboration interviews with family members

The trauma center must have a mechanism to provide an intervention for patients identified as problem drinkers.

Joint Commission Undertakes Development of Standards for SBI

To further advance the expansion of the continuum of healthcare to include SBI, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (Joint Commission) has decided to undertake the development of standards for screening and brief intervention for alcohol and other drugs. The Joint Commission standards are generally developed with input from healthcare professionals, providers, measurement experts, consumers, government agencies and employers. As such, because of your expertise on SBI, you are being asked to collaborate with the Joint Commission in the development of standards and quality improvement for SBI.

slide49
Summary
  • SBIRT prevents repeated injuries
  • SBIRT saves money
  • Trauma centers are the first to require SBIRT
  • Billing codes are available
  • Making it routine hospital care is next

Message to Trauma Patients

Make not thyself helpless drinking in

the beer shop, falling down.

Thy limbs will be broken, and no one

Will give thee a hand to help thee up
