Short Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test-geriatric version The SMAST-G
Assess for problem alcohol drinking in the elderly
Screening for alcohol misuse in the elderly can often be challenging, resulting in under-recognition or misdiagnosis. The elderly can present differently from younger adults with alcohol misuse.
As a result, screening tests such as the Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test-Geriatric version (MAST-G) have been developed to overcome these difficulties.
