Abstract: alcoholism, one of the most frequent diseases in the world, has been transformed in a serious social problem and in brazil, it has triplicated in the last decades. as nurses, we understand that alcoholics are sick people that need help and that communication is a fundamental method to achieve nursing intervention goals aiming at giving an adequate nursing care it is necessary to know the reasons why nurses have some adverse attitudes related to alcoholics. this inquietude led us to investigate the restraints that interfere in nurse-alcoholics communication, presented in national and international nursing literature reviewed through medllne and cepen catalogue. we observed that the alcoholics stereotype exist and remains constant through the time; the stereotype belief held by health professionals determines the quality of care the patient receives as well as the focus of research and attitudes presented about alcohol and alcoholics. therefore, the belief would be presenting a negative influence and keeping hack the communication between nurse and the alcoholic.

Reyes Navarrete, Pilar;Luis, Margarita Antonia Villar;
Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-11692004000700018
Abstract: this psychometric study aims to evaluate the attitudes of nurses working in a hospital network towards alcoholic patients. research participants were 71 nurses from public hospitals in la paz, bolivia. data were collected through the seaman mannello scale (nurses' atittudes towards alcohol and alcoholism), which consists of five subscales. according to the research results, nurses agree that alcoholic patients' life in unpleasant, so that they are not their preferred patients. they believe these patients deserve nursing care like everybody else but disclose indifference towards feeling comfortable about this care, although they affirm their willingness to help the patient. nurses perceive alcoholics as sensitive persons and think that alcohol consumption turns normal persons fragile and silly, which is risky since they conceptualize alcoholics as serious and unrecoverable patients. these data illustrate that the nurses' attitudes reflect their personal and professional context and probably their nursing education about this subject.

Abstract: BACKGROUND: Alcohol consumption can have a variety of cutaneous manifestations. Awareness of the cutaneous changes of alcohol abuse can allow early detection and intervention in an attempt to limit the adverse medical consequences. Hence a study was planned to determine the cutaneous changes in chronic alcoholics. AIMS: To determine the cutaneous changes in chronic alcoholics. METHODS: All the patients attending alcohol de-addiction camps were examined for cutaneous changes. The results were analyzed using Gausian test and compared with other reports. RESULTS: Out of 200 alcoholics examined for cutaneous changes, 182 (91%) had cutaneous, nail, hair or oral cavity changes. Nail changes were found in 51 (25.5%) alcoholics, koilonychia being the commonest (16%). Oral changes were present in 107 (53.5%) alcoholics and changes due to nutritional deficiency in 20 (10%). Diseases due to poor hygiene were seen in 55 (27.5%) alcoholics. Tinea versicolor (14%) and seborrheic dermatitis (11.5%) were the commonest cutaneous changes noted. CONCLUSION: Even though alcohol abuse has a variety of cutaneous manifestations and perhaps aggravates many diseases, there are no specific cutaneous signs of alcoholism. Knowledge of the spectrum of cutaneous manifestations of alcohol abuse can allow its early detection and treatment in an attempt to minimize the medical consequences.

O modelo de AA opera a constru o simbólica da doen a alcoólica e, por essa via, os alcoólicos encontram um sentido para o mal que os aflige, recuperando as rela es familiares e profissionais perdidas no tempo do alcoolismo ativo. The purpose of this article is to understand the therapeutic model of the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) to approach the so-called alcoholism illness by means of an analysis of cultural codes that operate in the health-illness process. Starting from an ethnographic research made among AA groups located in the outskirts of the city of S o Paulo - Brazil -, an analysis is made on the meanings attributed to the experience of alcoholism, with stress on the language that allows alcoholics to find a meaning for their afflictions.
