Study of an Emergency Department-based Intervention to Reduce Alcohol Misuse in Older Adults

 PI:  Christina Shenvi, MD

Sponsor:  National Institute on Aging (NIA)

 

  This is a randomized trial to assess the value of an emergency department-based intervention to reduce hazardous alcohol use among older adults. We hypothesize that the intervention will result in a 25% reduction in the prevalence of hazardous alcohol use while the control group will only have a 5% reduction.
