Abstract

KNOWLEDGE AND ATTITUDE ABOUT ALCOHOL IN POST GRADUATE MEDICAL STUDENTS IN A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL

Dr. Aarushi Jain* and Sudhir Bhave

ABSTRACT

Alcoholism is a chronic disease caused by problems in controlling one's drinking, leading to increased tolerance and experiencing withdrawal symptoms on decreasing or abruptly terminating intake. Doctors have to deal with many cases involving alcoholism on a regular basis. In this study we have attempted to know about the knowledge and attitude of post graduate medical students towards alcohol consumption, by getting a questionnaire filled up by the students anonymously after getting their consent. The questions included those about their knowledge of various alcoholic drinks and their constituents as well as their own drinking habits and also their ability to deal with alcohol dependent patients. The study shows that very few post graduate students are aware of the ill effects of alcohol and the legal aspects associated with the consumption of alcohol in India.
