MAST-G

Description: 
The MAST-G (Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test-Geriatric Version) varies from the MAST in that the questions highlight the special employment and social situations of someone who is retired and how that can relate to alcohol abuse. The tool consists of 24 questions.

Sensitivity and Specificity

According to one study, the MAST-G has a sensitivity of 93% and a specificity of 65% (Joseph et al, 1995)

Scoring

A score of 5 or more "yes" responses is indicative of a potential alcohol problem and suggests the need for further assessment.

Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)

Description: 
The 10-question Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) specifically for primary care settings as a screen for detecting at-risk or hazardous drinking. A shorter version of the AUDIT also is used in primary care and consists of the first 3 questions of the AUDIT. Note: The AUDIT manual from WHO suggests adjusting Question 3 based on the size of the standard drink in the country where it will be used. The U.S. standard drink is now 14 grams, therefore many clinicians are now using 4 drinks rather than 6 drinks in Question 3; alternatively, have the patient refer to a diagram showing the standard drink size.
