Injury-related consequences of alcohol misuse among injured patients who received screening and brief intervention for alcohol: a latent class analysis.
This study identifies latent classes of intervention recipients based on injury-related consequences and risks of alcohol misuse and then determines which profiles experienced the greatest improvements in drinking. It found that the patients who reported the greatest improvements in drinking following discharge were those characterized by multiple alcohol-related risks and those characterized by a history of alcohol-related accidents and injuries.
