Findings of several recent studies conducted in countries with high, middle, and low incomes are integrated into a handbook for emergency departments on research, practice, and policy relating to alcohol and injuries. It covers the epidemiology of alcohol and injury in emergency department studies, issues related to emergency department studies, identifying alcohol-related injuries, and screening and brief intervention in emergency departments and trauma centers. Among specific topics are variations of alcohol-related injury by type and cause of injury, aggregate versus individual data as bases for modeling the impact of alcohol on injury, the relation between blood alcohol content and clinically assessed intoxication, and changes in clinical practice regarding alcohol and motor vehicle crashes.
