  • Esther Maki, RN, MS, PHN, CHES May 15, 2008 Minnesota Department of Health Alcohol Exposed Pregnancy Prevention Project Funded by the Centers for Disease Control Reducing Harm to Minnesota Women Who Drink Too Much : The Smart Women Smart Choices Program University of Minnesota Powell Center for Women’s Health 3 rd Annual Women's Health Nursing Conference
  • Presentation Objectives
    • Describe trends in Minnesota women’s drinking and preventable conditions associated with problem drinking which may be influenced by early intervention.
    • Describe Minnesota women’s risk perceptions regarding risky drinking and their use of birth control and alcohol.
    • Discuss effective science based treatment for risky/problem drinking.
    • Describe components of a promising behavior change intervention for women at risk for alcohol exposed pregnancy and other alcohol-related problems.
  • “ The impact of two drinks on a man is roughly equivalent to one drink on a woman.” Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse,  2006  Women and Problem Drinking
  • Minnesota Women’s Drinking
    • Since the mid 1990s, national and state surveys confirm that Minnesota women are:
      • Drinking at an earlier age
      • Drinking more heavily and more often
      • Continue to drink during pregnancy
      • Binge drink, consuming 3 or more drinks in one sitting.
      • Minnesota Survey on Adult Substance Abuse, 1997
      • Minnesota Department of Health,2006. PRAMS Summary Book, 2002-2003.
      • Alcohol Consumption Among Women Who are Pregnant or Who Might Become Pregnant---U.S. 2002. Vol. 53, No. 50: 1178. 2004
  • Rise in College Women’s Binge Drinking
    • Minnesota
    • In a 2006 survey of 7,638 undergraduate students on 12 campuses state wide
      • Nearly 33% of women said they binge drank in the past 2 weeks.
    • Core Survey Report for University of Minnesota, 2006
    • Nationally
    • The Harvard School of Public Health National College Alcohol Study reports
      • A sharp increase (124 %) in frequent binge drinkers at the five all-women’s colleges in the 2001 College Alcohol Survey. Harvard School of Public Health, 2005
  • Women’s Alcohol Related Preventable Risks
    • Unprotected sex
    • Sexual assault and violence
    • Death or injury
    • Depression/anxiety
    • Unplanned and alcohol exposed pregnancy (AEP)
  • Preventable Health Risks Unintended Pregnancy and FASD
    • Women’s behaviors associated with AEP risk:
      • Binge or heavy drinking
      • Inconsistent or ineffective birth control use
    • Unintended Pregnancy
      • Nationally, nearly 50% of all pregnancies are mistimed or unwanted.
      • Many women continue their drinking habits before realizing they may be pregnant.
    • Hatcher, R.A. et al., 2004 and Guttmacher Institute, 2003
    • Alcohol Related Birth Defects
      • Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
      • Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS)
  • The Need for Effective Interventions for Risk/Problem Drinking Problem Drinking Research Sobell, LC and Sobell, MB. Problem Drinkers: Guided Self-Change Treatment, 1996. New York, NY: Guilford Press .
  • Defining Risk/Problem Drinking
    • Drinking at levels that places individuals at risk for health, safety, and social problems.
    • U.S. Preventive Services Task Force USPSTF, 2004
    • In Women – More than 7 drinks per week (heavy drinking) or more than 3 drinks in a 2-hour period (binge drinking).
    • In Men – More than 14 drinks per week or more than 5 drinks in a 2-hour period.
          • D HHS and Department of Agriculture, 2005
  • Binge Drinking is “Dangerous” Drinking
    • College Students Definition of Binge and Heavy Drinking
    • Rutgers University study found college students preferred the term “dangerous drinking” as less judgmental and salient to their experiences of drinking that resulted in impaired judgment and negative consequences.
            • Lederman, et al., 2003
    • The facts are that however excessive drinking is defined:
    • Binge drinking, (even occasionally) is especially risky for women.
    • When a woman drinks too much, her judgment, memory, and balance are impaired. Thus, she may be more vulnerable to a wide range of dangers .
    • NIAAA, 2005
  • Distribution of Alcohol Use in Adults Sobell, LC and Sobell, MB. Problem Drinkers: Guided Self-Change Treatment, Guilford Press, New York, NY 1996.
  • Drinking and Young Adults Ages of 18 and 29 years.
    • A time of transition and of increased risk for problems with alcohol.
    • The youngest segment—young adults ages 18–24 are:
      • Most at risk for alcohol problems, compared with other age-groups.
      • Most likely to drink heavily, regardless of gender, ethnicity, and school or work status—whether they attend college or are employed.
    • The problem continues to escalate: alcohol-related deaths rose 5 percent for 18- to 24-year-olds between 1998 and 2001.
    NIAAA , January 2008
  • Problem Drinkers Are Not Alcoholics
    • No history of severe alcohol withdrawal.
      • Have shorter drinking history, 5-10 years.
      • Will not necessarily progress to more severe drinking.
    • Sobell, LC and Sobell, MB, 1996
    Risk/problem drinkers do not fit criteria For chemical dependency treatment
  • Problem Drinkers May be open to Self-Change
    • Tend to have greater economic and social resources to call upon to help themselves change their drinking.
    • Tend to have higher self-esteem (confidence in the ability to change).
    • Need information and support to resolve their conflict about their drinking.
    Problem drinkers do not self-identify as alcoholic and are likely to resist suggestions for addiction treatment services. S obell, LC and Sobell, MB, 1996
  • The Need for New Approaches
    • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends:
    • “ Preventing FAS requires intervening not only with pregnant women but also with childbearing-aged women before conception .”
    • FAS is 100% preventable if women
      • avoid drinking during the conception
      • and prenatal periods.
  • Reasons Women Are Not Screened or Counseled for Alcohol Use
    • Despite the availability of national guidelines* to routinely screen adults, a CASA 2000 study of primary care providers found that less than one-third do.
    • Lack of time and reimbursement for counseling.
    • Lack of awareness or confidence in:
          • Screening tools and interventions
          • Their own screening or counseling skills.
    • Uncertainty about:
          • How to assist problem drinkers.
          • Safe drinking guidelines
          • The difference between problem drinking and dependence.
    • Fear of alienating clients. ACOG, NIAAA, CDC/NCBDDD, USPSTF
    • Finding Effective Approaches For College Students
    • A need for prevention programs that “do not assume that every choice college students make has been carefully considered before they act on it.”
    • Effective Programs:
    • Combine cognitive-behavioral skills with
      • Norms clarification and
        • Motivational enhancement .
    • NIAAA, College Drinking, Changing the Culture, 2007
  • Alcohol Exposed Pregnancy Prevention Project Minnesota Department of Health Funded 2003-2008 through a Cooperative Agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities
  • Alcohol Exposed Pregnancy Prevention Project Goals
    • Minnesota Department of Health funded to a dapt and implement:
    • A CDC designed and tested behavior change intervention for Minnesota women to prevent alcohol exposed pregnancy (AEP).
    • A CDC designed Fetal Alcohol Syndrome surveillance system.
  • CDC Behavior Change Intervention to Prevent Alcohol Exposed Pregnancy
    • The CDC designed and tested intervention goal:
      • Reduce women's risk for unintended and alcohol exposed pregnancy by giving women the choice and tools to:
    • Increase effective birth control use
            • And/OR
    • Decrease drinking to below risky levels
  • CDC Intervention Based on Alcohol Treatment Research
    • Motivational Interviewing for Behavioral Change
    • Miller & Rollnick, 1995
    • “ Motivational interviewing is a directive, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence.”
    • Guided Self Change For Problem Drinking
    • Linda & Mark Sobell, 1993
    • Self-guided change materials are print and media tools which integrate:
      • MI change strategies, and
      • A client centered approach, “the spirit and style of motivational interviewing”.
  • CDC AEP Intervention Based on Alcohol Treatment Research
    • The problem drinking intervention studies integrate the principles, practices and tools developed in the alcohol research and treatment field.
      • Stages of Change Theory
      • Prochaska and DiClemente, 1992
      • Motivational Interviewing for Behavioral Change
      • Miller & Rollnick, 1991
      • Guided Self Change Treatment
      • Linda and Mark Sobell, 1993
  • Alcohol Treatment Research Guided Self-Change Treatment
    • Guided self-change integrates the strategies, tools, and “spirit of motivational interviewing”, into print and media formats.
    • Helps individuals recognize and use their strengths to resolve their drinking problem.
    Sobell LC and Sobell MB, 1996 “ Motivation for change occurs when people perceive a discrepancy between where they are and where they want to be.”
          • Miller, Zweben, DiClemente, & Rychtarik, 1992
    • Assessment and Feedback —gathers data about person’s drinking and provides feedback to increase understanding of the problem
    • Self-Study Materials —reading materials and homework assignments provided
    • Follow up Sessions —to monitor progress and identify additional support
    • Additional treatment available upon request.
    Components of Guided Self-Change Sobell LC and Sobell MB, 1996
  • Adapting the Intervention for Minnesota Women Minnesota Department of Health Research Findings
  • Minnesota Women Formative Research
    • Focus Groups, Fall 2005
      • Women’s knowledge, attitudes, behaviors
      • Phase 1: Women Statewide 18-44 years of age (N=38)
      • Phase 2: College Women 18-25 years of age (N=18)
    • Based on findings, a community advisory group recommended a self-guided change program designed for college women 18-25 years of age.
    • Media Promotion Campaign, Spring 2006
      • Focus groups pretesting with college women
    • Website Usability Pretesting, Fall 2006
      • 1-to-1 sessions with college women
    • Self-guided Change Workbooks, Fall 2006
  • Key Findings and Challenges Sexual Activity and Birth Control Use
    • Nearly all the women (88%) reported being sexually active, and nearly half used contraception ineffectively.
    • More than half of college women did not seem worried about unintended pregnancy.
      • Birth Control Use : Statewide women reported a little higher use (55%) than college women (50%).
      • Unintended Pregnancy : Nearly four times as many college students (45%) than statewide women (12%) said they worried “a great deal” or “some” about unintended pregnancy .
    • Three quarters of the women said they did not worry about their drinking.
    • Binge and Heavy Drinking:
      • Half of the college women (50%) and over a third (34%) of the statewide women admitted to binge drinking five or more times in the last 30 days.
    Key Findings and Challenges Alcohol Use
  • Key Findings and Challenges Linked Drinking and Sex
    • “ I think the sex kind of goes along with drinking because like when
    • your friends go out, you always ask
    • did you go home alone ?”
    Minnesota Statewide Woman MN Department of Health Focus Group, 2005
  • Key Findings and Challenges Campus Drinking Norms
    • “ Most students who binge drink
    • probably would be considered to
    • have a problem, but in this context,
    • you just shrug it off and say
    • it is just part of college life.”
    • Minnesota College Women
    • MN Department of Health Focus Group, 2005
  • Key Findings and Challenges Women’s Perception of Risks Source: Women’s personal surveys completed at focus group sessions. 37% 23% — 34% 38% 12% 16% NA 29% 72% 61% 61% 61% 45% 45% 45% 39% NA
    • The dollar costs of my drinking
    • Weight gain and drinking
    • STIs
    • Legal consequences of drinking
    • Sexual assault & safety when drinking
    • Unintended pregnancy and drinking
    • Disease or other health risks
    • Poor academic performance
    • Social/Relationship consequences of drinking
    Statewide (N= 38) College (N= 18) I worry some or a great deal about:
  • Key Findings and Challenges Perceived No Risk or Need for Change
    • Few women seemed concerned about their contraception use.
      • May believe they are safe from unintended pregnancy; they believe they are effectively using contraception.
    • Far fewer expressed concern about their drinking.
      • May see college drinking as “normal” and a temporary condition that will end once they have completed school.
  • Key Findings and Challenges Knowledge and Risk Perception
    • Had difficulty distinguishing risky drinking from dependence.
    • Expressed greater concern about the dollar costs and weight gain than the more serious potential alcohol related health risks.
    • Not concerned about FAS.
    • Agreed the fear of unintended pregnancy may be the critical issue to draw women to the program.
  • What College Women Said Would Work There are places that deal with drinking. There are places you go for birth control. There are plenty of both... So the combining of the two is the only thing that really makes the program .“ Minnesota College Woman MN Department of Health Focus Group, 2005
  • Who Needs Information About Drinking and Contraception on Campus
    • Younger college women are the most unprepared to handle campus drinking and partying.
    • Design the delivery, messages and content to attract women in transition between high school and college.
    • A program addressing both contraception and alcohol use is unique, and beneficial.
  • Focus Group Findings Liked Media vs. Face-to-Face Delivery
    • Web-delivered:
    • “ It is just another method of communication at the University. It is just what people turn to right away.”
    • Self-paced and flexible:
    • “ I think that it is a good idea that it’s self-paced so you don’t have someone pushing them.”
    • Provide program access options:
    • “ And different points of entry like you can choose to call …”
    Minnesota College Women MN Department of Health Focus Group, 2005
  • Focus Group Findings Mad About Self Rated Quizzes
    • “ We are suckers for quizzes.
    • Come on, who doesn’t like to take quizzes.
    • We all do. Women do.”
    • Use Quizzes to:
      • Challenge women’s perceptions and knowledge about alcohol related risks.
      • Promote the program to women.
      • Engage women in the program content.

  • Integrating Self-Guided Change (SGC) into Primary Care Practice Smart Women Smart Choices
  • The Promise of Integrating SGC Interventions into Primary Care Settings
    • Research-based self-guided change interventions for problem drinking can overcome common barriers to providing effective patient-centered care for problem drinking:
    • Offers problem drinkers an option to initially address their drinking without attending classes or referral to costly treatment .
    • Offers providers an opportunity to support client self-change and diminish the risk of alienating problem drinkers who may be resistant to chemical dependency assessment.
    • Requires providers to screen and recommend SGC but can reduce clinic based counseling and education time .
  • Integrating SGC for Problem Drinking into Practice Setting
    • Imbed SGC program information into existing consumer education delivery models:
      • Provide “just in time” client access to SGC website program materials, and program educators via clinic phones and computers.
      • Promote the program via consumer/patient websites, newsletters, clinic poster and brochure distribution.
      • Support providers to encourage problem drinkers to check out the program, especially when they present a “ready to change” moment or incident.
  • Supporting Providers to Integrate SGC for Problem Drinking
    • Educate and equip providers:
      • The difference between addiction and problem/risk drinking.
      • The use of screening and brief motivational counseling skills and tools.
      • Motivational interviewing and self-guided change for problem drinking.
      • Gender and culturally appropriate guidelines of care and referral resources for the continuum of drinking problems.
