Introduction: Alcohol misuse can be improved with health promotion by frontline staff, however they need to be knowledgeable about intervention strategies.
Objective: To explore alcohol knowledge of frontline staff in a hospital serving an area with higher than average alcohol related harm levels.
Method: 265 staff completed a questionnaire survey exploring baseline knowledge of alcohol content in beverages and interventions for reducing consumption.
Result: 19% correctly stated the alcohol content across all beverages in the questionnaire. 51% of the cohort underestimated the alcohol content, and 11% had no knowledge of alcohol units.
Conclusion: Alcohol knowledge amongst frontline staff is poor, further training in this area is paramount to ensure alcohol reduction interventions are delivered effectively at the point of care.
