Abstract

Alcohol, cannabis and other substance use affects young people's health. Primary care physicians are encouraged to screen and provide brief interventions for substance use in this population, but implementation is often limited. Pre-consultation self-administered screening may decrease at-risk substance use and could have population-level benefits. A randomized controlled trial is planned to test this hypothesis. The present pilot study's objective was to assess the feasibility of methods for the future trial.
