Alcohol IBA for Dental Teams
Dental teams are part of the primary care umbrella therefore it is important that they have the most up-to-date information to be able to discuss with patients the impact lifestyle choices have on oral health.
IBA is the delivery of ‘simple brief advice’ which follows identification of how much your patient is drinking. IBA is usually delivered by non-alcohol specialists and has shown to be effective in helping people to reduce their alcohol intake.
Module of 4 of this project is aimed at dental teams, and will help you undertake a screening test and then give routine, opportunistic ‘simple brief advice’. This programme is aligned to Section 8 ‘Alcohol Misuse and Oral Health’ within Delivering Better Oral Health.
