ABSTRACT

This study aimed to identify patients' sub-groups through measures of socio-demographic variables, alcohol consumption and alcohol health literacy. Instruments were administered to a sample of 118 patients in Colombia. Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) was used to identify subgroups of individuals with common characteristics. Two groups were identified: one of women with good knowledge about alcohol consequences, low acceptability of regular alcohol intake, lower levels of alcohol drinking, and less openness to discussing alcohol with health practitioners; and one of men with lower levels of knowledge, higher levels of cultural acceptability of drinking, higher levels of consumption, and more openness to discussing alcohol. Results indicate that the higher the risk of alcohol, the more openness to discussing alcohol with health practitioners.

Keywords: alcohol drinking, health literacy, primary health care
