How does it work?
The CIWA-Ar is not copyrighted and may be reproduced freely. As health care professionals, use this app to determine when alcohol abuse and other substance abuse leads to patient withdrawal symptoms that require specific treatment. Drinking too much leads to a substance use disorder and substance dependence that requires direct treatment when withdrawal symptoms occur.
This assessment for monitoring withdrawal symptoms requires approximately 5 minutes to administer. The maximum score is 67 (see instrument). Patients scoring less than 10 do not usually need additional medication for withdrawal. See the impact GoCanvas can have on your practice.
