Updated on 23/03/2011
The PAT is an evolving pragmatic clinical tool (Patton et al, 2004; 2005) that detects alcohol misuse early on in a drinker's natural history and acts to implant the relationship between A&E attendance and alcohol misuse by making best use of 'The Teachable Moment' The PAT is revised every year by the St Mary's Alcohol team. The Safe Moves and Health Vowels are aids used at St Mary's in identification.
