Rachel Owens describes an emergency nursing approach to health education of teenagers
The purpose of this study is to review the number of paediatric alcohol related attendances to Whiston Hospitals A&E Department. This was in order to assess if the service to this population could be improved. The study involved reviewing the department’s data between 1997 and 1998, and identifying a potential gap in the service. A proposal to improve this service was investigated and implemented, identifying and incorporating a multiprofessional approach. Finally, the paper reviews the effectiveness of this proposal which was implemented by A&E nurses.
