Description:
Now that the dust has settled on the Christmas festivities it is a good time to focus again on our national predilection, alcohol. Hopefully Christmas was a joyous occasion for the majority of people but for many it will have been ruined by the consequences of excess drinking and alcohol dependence. Family members who live with someone in active alcohol dependence absolutely dread this time of the year. I have a long association of working with nurses. I have very happy memories of their wonderful care and professionalism in the various places I have worked – in particular in St Patrick’s Hospital. Their willingness to support and teach me in the early stages of my career is very much appreciated. In more recent years I have had a lot of contact with practice nurses given my role with the ICGP and since I left that post I have been privileged to be invited to speak at a number of practice nurse meetings. I spoke at their AGM in Limerick in October 2014 on this very subject.
