BRANCO, Fernanda Matos Fernandes Castelo et al. The patterns of consumption of alcohol among employees of a Brazilian public university. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2019, vol.serIV, n.22, pp.85-95. ISSN 0874-0283.

Background: Alcohol is an easily accessible legal drug, widely used, and considered a public health problem worldwide. Therefore, there is a growing concern with this consumption among employees of educational institutions. Objective: To identify the pattern of consumption of alcohol among employees of a public university. Methodology: A cross-sectional study. Fifty-three online questionnaires were applied to administrative technicians and lecturers of a public university in northern Brazil, evaluated through the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT). The chi-squared test and Fisher's exact test were used, with a p-value of = 0.05 to test the level of significance of the variables and the AUDIT score. Results: Among the participants, 68% have a low-risk use or do not consume alcohol, 24% present a risky use, 2% harmful consumption, and 6% probable dependence. Only the children variable showed a statistical association with the problematic use of alcohol. Conclusion: The results suggest a problematic consumption of alcohol in a significant portion of the sample studied, resulting in the need for the implementation of brief interventions in the population studied.
