Alcohol occupies a significant place in Australian culture and is consumed to for purposes of enjoyment, sociability or to escape problems. Many consumers turn to alcohol as a way to relieve stress and this is increasingly evident during the current climate of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This webinar will discuss alcohol consumption rates in Australia including for pregnant women with a focus on having initiating short yet effective conversations to identify at risk patients in the general practice setting.  We will run through using the Audit-C tool to screen patients and identify their level of risk and their potential need for support or intervention.
