Alcohol-related brain damage (ARBD) is a
relatively new term that encompasses a range of syndromes,
rather than focusing on the classic description of Korsakoff's
ARBD presents major challenges to healthcare services, including
repeated acute hospital admissions and a high level of morbidity.
It is thought to be significantly under-diagnosed for various
reasons, including issues relating to awareness, screening, service
pathways and treatment options.
This module aims to improve your knowledge and awareness of
ARBD. During the module you will have the opportunity to listen to
audio accounts from a patient and their carer about the
specialised rehabilitation services for ARBD.
