Educational workshops for nursing on brief intervention in cases of alcohol consumption.

A workshop lasting between 1 and 2 days is recommended as an educational modality to prepare nurses for addressing brief interventions and motivational interviewing in cases of alcohol consumption. The literature generally recommends combining the delivery of theory with practical dynamics to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to perform relevant and effective brief interventions.

One of the proposed theoretical contents would consist of an intervention manual developed by clinical psychologists, and it is also recommended to design an action protocol as didactic material for the session(s). Follow-up sessions are also recommended after the training to ensure the quality of the interventions. Likewise, it would be pertinent to conduct recall sessions, with a determined time interval.

Brief interventions are associated with a reduction in alcohol consumption among patients who benefit from them.
