Invitation to Participate in BC Guidelines External Reviews – High-risk Drinking and Alcohol Use Disorder



Open to Provincial Region


The High-Risk Drinking and Alcohol Use Disorder guideline is available for External Review until January 12, 2023.

This guideline is an adaptation of the British Columbia Centre on Substance Use’s (BCCSU) Provincial Guideline for the Clinical Management of High-Risk Drinking and Alcohol Use Disorder (2019). It aims to outline the identification and clinical management of high-risk drinking and alcohol use disorder in adults (individuals aged 25 years and older) and youth (individuals aged 11-24 years). The guideline was drafted by a working group of BC practitioners, including family physicians, addiction medicine physicians, as well as people with lived/living experience.

Please visit the BC Guidelines External Review page to download the draft guideline and submit your feedback via our online questionnaire.

Patient and family partners should not be a check box on research proposals! They need to be involved right from the start. I know patient and family partners are doing their part by providing their knowledge to researchers from their lived experience.  It’s a win-win for us to work together through PVN to make sure our input drives improvements.
