Attitudes and recommendations of health care providers towards patient alcohol consumption and knowledge of drinking guidelines: A Multi-ethnic descriptive study

Excessive alcohol consumption is a growing risk, contributing to an increase in the global disease burden. While general awareness of alcohol misuse is prevalent, many misconceptions remain regarding recommendations of appropriate intake, and risks and benefits of consumption. In general, alcohol consumption guidelines are publicly misunderstood and highly variable. Much of the literature has reported beneficial outcomes with a light-to-moderate intake, but this has been a source of debate. This survey focuses on health care providers and seeks to understand if they are aware of alcohol consumption guidelines, how to decipher them, and whether they are comfortable counselling a patient on patterns of safe intake

Nov 28, 2017      Factors that influence clinical decision making The objective of this study is to evaluate factors that influence decision making in the presence of significant uncertainty. This survey consists of four common cardiology case descriptions with a choice of management options followed by seven attributes that may influence decision making. The respondents are asked to rate the influence of each of these domains on their decision. Follow up questions assess the knowledge and impact of values, costs, and clinical practice guidelines. The results of the survey will enhance our understanding of clinical decision making and assist in developing tools to improve this process in the future. This survey will take approximately 10 to 12 minutes to complete. We appreciate your time and input. If you have further questions, please contact one of the investigators on this study. Veena Manja at This email address is being protected from spambots.
