Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are delighted to announce their
first National Alcohol Conference on the 14th May 2014. We will be offering an
innovative view into the treatment of alcohol use disorders with emphasis on the future.
Ful l programme –
The Conference will provide a unique opportunity to explore
challenges and changes from both physical and psychological
perspectives. We will promote an exciting and interactive
experience for delegates by exploring advanced approaches in
alcohol research and treatment applications:
Professor Alex Copello
will offer insight into the significant
and stressful ways the family unit is affected. However families can
also provide important positive influences in the process of change.
The session will review the evidence for some of these interventions
and suggest a way forward in terms of clinical implementation and
future research.
Dr Katrina Scior
explores the problems associated with alcohol
misuse which are increasingly prevalent in those with learning
disabilities due to readily accessible alcohol associated with
community living. NICE recommend Brief Intervention (BI) prior to
receiving any more specialist interventions. This presentation
examines whether BI available to adults can be delivered to those
with mild to moderate learning disabilities.
Each year an estimated 1 million people attend A & E departments
in the UK following Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Alcohol related
head trauma in particular is recognised as a major public health
problem and a large contributor to the incidence and cost of TBI.
Vanessa Raymont
suggests that Initial diagnosis of severity of TBI is
not a reliable indicator of long-term problems and thus underlines
the necessity to develop long term follow up services.
Repeated alcohol detoxifications can lead to an inability to perform
a task that captures two of the basic features of addictive behaviour
– cue induced motivation to seek a reward and failure to inhibit
such motivation when reward seeking is inappropriate. The data
presented by
Professor Theodora Duka
in this session will add to our
understanding of alcoholism and may have implications as to how
alcoholic detoxification is carried out.
There is strong consensus for those experiencing medically assisted
withdrawal from alcohol it should be part of a structured treatment
Dr Christos Kouimtsidis
discusses the interventions which
are based on CBT. Key components range from identifying high risk
situations to coping skills facilitating overall lifestyle changes
compatible with an abstinent way of living. The presentation will
examine the experience of the Preparation for Alcohol
Detoxification Groups established in 2009 from both qualitative
and quantitative perspectives.
Foetal alcohol syndrome is recognised as one of the most common
causes of intellectual disability.
Dr Raja Mukherjee
will include an
overview as to the complexity of the diagnosis together with
findings to better understand the subtleties of individual
presentation covering cognitive, sensory, communication and wider
neurodevelopmental overlaps caused by prenatal alcohol exposure.
As discussed, alcohol consumption has a high impact on many
lifestyle and risk factors for disease and death in the UK.
of the East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group will present
their “Alcohol in Safer Hands” Project which involves the scoping
and integrated commissioning of a new alcohol service
specification pathway across the whole health and social care
economy in East surrey. It aims to set East Surrey as a beacon for
Integrated Service Specifications for Alcohol as a case study to help
other CCGs reduce the harm caused by alcohol.
