Know Your Numbers Principle • If your staff can’t calculate their own risk level of drinking (if they drink), they can’t help your patients to do the same • Staff with improved knowledge of alcohol units can ask their patients about their drinking • Allows them to identify and treat patients 27th January 2016 Getting to Grips with Alcohol 2016 3
