Mentored Research on Improving Alcohol Brief Interventions in Medical Settings

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The NIAAA estimates that 16% (40 million) of adults in the US are drinking at unsafe levels. More than 50% of alcohol health consequences occur in risky, non-dependent drinkers. Increasing the efficacy and efficiency of brief interventions in medical setting could significantly reduce the public health impacts of risky drinking. There is intense interest in conducting motivational interviewing (MI) informed brief interventions for risky alcohol use in medical settings, but little empirical information is available regarding which MI behavioral and interpersonal style components drive effectiveness. The field would benefit greatly from empirically-based Stage 1 treatment development and modeling studies to delineate the degree to which adding motivational interviewing components to brief intervention improves outcome.

Description

The NIAAA estimates that 16% (40 million) of adults in the US are drinking at unsafe levels, placing them at risk for a variety of physical, mental health, and social consequences. More than 50% of alcohol health consequences occur in risky, non-dependent drinkers. Increasing the efficacy and efficiency of brief interventions in medical setting could significantly reduce the public health impacts of risky drinking. Despite overall positive findings for brief interventions, there are high levels of variability in effects, with meta-analyses reporting significant unexplained heterogeneity in outcomes that is likely accounted for by differences in intervention components and strategies. There is intense interest in conducting motivational interviewing (MI) informed brief interventions for risky alcohol use in medical settings, but little empirical information is available regarding which MI behavioral and interpersonal style components drive effectiveness.

Following promising efficacy trials from counseling applications, MI was translated into brief (5-15 minute) interactions and subjected to randomized controlled trial methodology. Lack of mixed-methods, Stage 1 treatment development is evidenced by our inability to provide consistent delineation of key intervention components and mechanisms of action. Variability in these factors is likely responsible for the wide variability in effects observed in meta-analyses of brief interventions. Many MI skills and behaviors require significant training and supervision and increased patient-provider interaction time. The field would benefit greatly from empirically-based Stage 1 treatment development and modeling studies to delineate the degree to which adding motivational interviewing components to brief intervention improves outcome.

Substances interfering with the metabolism of ethyl alcohol, causing unpleasant side effects thought to discourage the drinking of alcoholic beverages. Alcohol deterrents are used in the treatment of alcoholism.

A process that changes the nucleotide sequence of mRNA from that of the DNA template encoding it. Some major classes of RNA editing are as follows: 1, the conversion of cytosine to uracil in mRNA; 2, the addition of variable number of guanines at pre-determined sites; and 3, the addition and deletion of uracils, templated by guide-RNAs (RNA, GUIDE).

Phospholipids which have an alcohol moiety in ethereal linkage with a saturated or unsaturated aliphatic alcohol. They are usually derivatives of phosphoglycerols or phosphatidates. The other two alcohol groups of the glycerol backbone are usually in ester linkage. These compounds are widely distributed in animal tissues.
