The Short Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test – Geriatric Version (SMAST-G)

Screening for alcohol abuse can often be overlooked in a general health assessment for older adults, due to other physical or more visible conditions.

The Short Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (SMAST-G) is a practical tool to help care providers recognize early warning signs of alcohol abuse. The DVD provides information on the effects of alcohol on the aging body, and factors that often lead to an abuse or dependence on alcohol. Also shows how to apply motivational interviewing skills that sensitively help older adults to recognize the existence of unhealthy behavior patterns, and/or come to terms with a potential need for treatment. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
