Abstract: Although elderly with alcohol problems often use health care organisation and alcoholism is a threat for their health, it is seldom detected. Therefore, an instrument for a first screening of alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence in elderly would be useful. The quality of screening instruments for alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence in elderly in a clinical setting is reviewed. The two questions of Cyr and Wartman, AUDIT and MAST are not, the geriatric vrsion of the MAST and especially the CAGE are appropiate for alcohol screening in elderly in a clinical environment
