Change Requested (be explicit about which data items involved and how):

This generic standard has been produced by modifying the equivalent standard in the Child
Health Data Standards (Phase 2) as follows.

      Add new appropriate related items

      In adults, the most common time periods assessed are daily and weekly

      Amend „Unit of alcohol‟ section

The similar “Alcohol Intake per Average Week” (Cardiac Rehab, Diabetes etc) should be
modified/ aligned with this standard.


Level of Urgency (information on how soon the request needs to be
implemented and why):
                            Change Control – Request Application



Routine


Background (i.e. reason for request):

Recent development of generic lifestyle standards, has highlighted the need for some more
recent specialty standards to be adopted and adapted for generic use, and for these to
replace similar older specialy standards.

Health Professionals calculate units of alcohol using this simple calculation

NEW DATA DICTIONARY STANDARD(S)

This generic standard has been produced by modifying the equivalent standard in
the Child Health Data Standards (Phase 2) as follows.

Alcohol Units Consumed (Average Number)

Common name: Average Units of Alcohol Consumed, Alcohol Intake

Definition: A record of the average quantity of alcohol consumed by the individual in a
specified period of time, measured in units.

Format: Numeric

Field length: 3

Codes and values: N/A

Sub data item
Time Period
Code     Value
01       Daily
02       Weekly
03       Fortnightly
04       Monthly
05       Yearly

Related data items: Alcohol Drinking Status, Alcohol Units Consumed (Maximum Daily),
Alcohol Consumed Days Per Week (Number), Alcohol Type Consumed, Alcohol
Consumption Advice Method (Non-specialist)

Further information:
This data item can be applied where the individual is a current drinker, current non-drinker or
ex-drinker to record the average alcohol consumption.
In adults, the most common time periods assessed are daily and weekly. In children,
adolescents and those who drink alcohol intermittently, for example „social drinkers‟ other
time periods may be more relevant.
The average quantity of alcohol drunk will usually be an estimate (often an under-estimate).
Whilst the absolute quantity may be inaccurate, it can give a useful indication of how heavy a
drinker the person is/ was and allows trend analysis for example, when a person is trying to
stop or reduce the amount of alcohol drunk.

Ref. SIGN Guideline 74: “Management of harmful drinking and alcohol dependence in
primary care http://www.sign.ac.uk/pdf/sign74.pdf

A unit of alcohol
1 unit = 8g of alcohol e.g. a half pint of 3.5% beer or lager, or one 25ml measure of spirits. A
small (125ml) glass of average strength (12%) wine contains 1.5 units.

Further Information

A unit of alcohol
1 unit = 8g of alcohol e.g. a half pint of 3.5% beer or lager, or one 25ml measure of spirits. A

Whilst the number of units consumed per week should usually be regarded as an estimate
(often an under-estimate), recording of a numerical value has a number of uses: to assess
whether a person's consumption is within prevailing recommended consumption limits and to
measure changes in consumption over time.
