Abstract

The SIPS study is a major UK evaluation of screening and brief intervention strategies for

present the results of a pilot study of screening tools and the main study screening results in

and 205 consented to take part in the study. The screening tools being evaluated were the

Gold standard comparison was AUDIT. The mean age in the pilot study was 31 years (SD 9)

was high at 70% with almost 50% at the dependent end of the spectrum. Those scoring

health and criminal justice services. A ROC analysis of the instruments demonstrated high

superiority of FAST over M-SASQ (AUC 0.97 vs. 0.92). The main study is a pragmatic

screening tool (FAST vs. M-SASQ) and 3 brief interventions (Patient information leaflet vs.

854 were eligible and screened with 573 screening positive. The initial results indicate a high

FAST was high (81% vs. 92%) but FAST appears to be more sensitive than M-SASQ at

M-SASQ of 2.69 (CI 1.55–4.67) for all alcohol use disorders and 1.58 (CI 1.11–2.24) for

this population but we do not yet know how the screening mechanism interacts with the

treatment intervention.
