Alcohol Withdrawal Assessment Training Protocol: A Case Study


Gina Reiners

It has become exceedingly challenging for nurses to manage alcohol withdrawal syndrome because their patients’ clinical symptoms have become much more complicated, especially when they present with complex co morbidities. Additionally, it is critical that nurses and physicians work collaboratively with alcohol withdrawal assessment protocols, so that patients receive the most effective detoxification treatment. The purpose of this case study is to present one approach to implementing an alcohol assessment training protocol using the CIWA/ Ar at a southern New England acute care hospital on the psychiatric unit. Consequently, the planning and implementation process created a more cohesive team among the nurses and physicians, which may potentially contribute to positive patient outcomes.
