Senior Alcohol Misuse Indicator (SAMI)

The SAMI tool aims to assist in identifying older adults who are currently experiencing problem drinking or who are at-risk for developing drinking problems. It is a 5-item questionnaire which was found to be superior to the CAGE and SMAST-G in terms of sensitivity. To review the introductory webinar on this tool click here.
