ReDIAL: A Telephone Brief Intervention for Injured Emergency Department Patients
The goal of this study is to reduce impaired driving, risky driving and alcohol-related negative consequences among injured emergency department (ED) patients through a telephone brief intervention. This study will allow researchers to test a novel method of brief intervention that has the potential to be convenient and efficient mechanism to deliver an intervention to an at-risk population. Eligible patients will be consented in the ED, will receive an assessment and then will be randomized into one of two conditions: 1) telephone brief intervention or 2) a comparison control group with a home safety educational program. The participant will also receive an appointment for an initial telephone call. Both conditions will be provided over three telephone sessions: the initial call (immediately following randomization) and two booster calls at 2 weeks and 6 weeks after randomization. Participants will provide information about their alcohol use, alcohol-related injuries, impaired driving, and other driving related negative consequences at 4, 8, and 12 months post-randomization.

- Change in number of patients with alcohol-related negative consequences from baseline to 4, 8, and 12 months post-randomization [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in alcohol-related negatve consequences at 4, 8, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Specifically, the effect of the intervention on alcohol-related injuries and alcohol-related psychosocial consequences from baseline at 4, 8, and 12 months post-randomization.
- Evaluation of mechanisms of change model [ Time Frame: 12 months post-randomization ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Determine the moderators and mediators of primary outcomes.
