The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has referred to research conducted by SPCR Fellow Zarnie Khadjesari and colleagues from University College London in its November 2013 Update for Primary Care.

The cited article was published in the October issue of the British Journal of General Practice, 'Alcohol consumption screening of newly-registered patients in primary care: a cross sectional analysis'. The research investigates the use of NICE recommended screening tests by GPs to identify people with alcohol-use disorders. Researchers examined how alcohol screening data are recorded in primary care, the extent to which they are recorded, and whether reported levels of consumption differ from general population data.

Authors Zarnie Khadjesari, Louise Marston, Irene Petersen, Irwin Nazareth and Kate Walters are based in the Primary Care and Population Health Department, University College London.
