Alcohol Identification & Brief Advice (IBA) Training during COVID-19 Lockdown

Change grow live (cgl) have been commissioned to deliver identification and brief advice (IBA) training for frontline staff that work within Nottinghamshire. IBA has been proven to have a positive impact on individuals that drink in excess of the recommended alcohol consumption guidelines. Research has shown that 1 in 8 drinkers will make reductions in their alcohol consumption after an IBA intervention has taken place.

This training will provide frontline staff with critical alcohol harm reduction advice that will be relevant to the current and evolving isolating and lockdown conditions. The alcohol IBA during COVID -19 lockdown training will also aim to raise frontline staff awareness of the role of units, lower risk drinking limits and the risks associated with alcohol during these unprecedented times.

• How lock down and isolation has impacted our alcohol consumption
