Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention

In 2012, the Arctic Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Regional Training Center (Arctic FASD RTC) was funded to collaborate with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Section of Public Health Nursing (SOPHN) and implement an alcohol screening and brief intervention (SBI) protocol at the health system level. The overall goals of the two-year pilot project were to document the implementation process, identify barriers and facilitators to implementation, and evaluate the uptake of alcohol SBI in multiple clinic settings. The project provided an opportunity to increase public health nurses’ adoption of evidence-base practices to address at-risk alcohol use in Alaska, including the prevention of alcohol-exposed pregnancies. The practice became a sustained clinical preventive service in public health centers across Alaska.
