Health Economics Research Unit, University of Aberdeen, 2010.
Poor drinkers in the UK consume a relatively high proportion of their alcohol in the form of very cheap products, but wealthier drinkers also drink these; a moderately high minimum price would spread the impact. Findings informed a Home Office assessment of the likely impact of a rise in the price of alcohol in Britain.
Purshouse R.C., Meier P.S., Brennan Alan. et al.
Lancet: 2010, 375(9723), p. 1355–1364.
Commissioned by the English health department, the first study to model the impacts of alcohol policies by integrating data on pricing, promotion, purchasing, consumption and harm found that price rises or bans on promotions can bring major benefits. Findings informed a Home Office assessment of the impacts of raising the price of alcohol.
STUDY 2010 HTM file
What process research tells us about brief intervention efficacy
Daeppen J-B., Bertholet N., Gaume J.
Drug and Alcohol Review: 2010, 29, p. 612–616.
The disappointing finding of no impact in a Swiss study of a brief alcohol intervention with risky drinking A&E patients prompted painstaking analyses of why some patients did respond, and why some counsellors had far better results than others.
HM Government, 2011.
National UK policy recommendations for pre-school initiatives to forestall later problems including those related to substance use, based partly on a review of the most promising programmes.
Field C.A., Caetano R.
Drug and Alcohol Dependence: 2010, 111, p. 13–20.
At a US emergency department, a brief conversation about the pros and cons of their risky drinking and offers of support for any efforts to reduce harm curbed drinking among alcohol-dependent patients; non-dependent patients tended to do better with assessment and usual care only.
Field C.A., Caetano R., Harris T.R. et al.
Addiction: 2010, 105(1), p. 62–73.
At a US emergency department, a brief conversation about the pros and cons of their drinking and offers of support for any efforts to reduce harm led (compared to assessment and usual care) to extra reductions in the drinking of injured Hispanic patients but not white or black patients.
Field C.A., Caetano R.
Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research: 2010, 34(2), p. 262–271.
At a US emergency department, a brief conversation about the pros and cons of their risky drinking and offers of support for any efforts to reduce harm led to extra reductions in the drinking of Hispanic patients which were greatest when they were matched to a Hispanic and Spanish-speaking counsellor.
Constant A., Lafont S., Chiron M. et al.
Addiction: 2010, 105(1), p. 57–61.
Concludes that the low risk of getting caught and the embededness of drinking in the social life of France meant that, despite a big impact on speeding, traffic violation crackdowns did not reduce the prevalence of drink-driving.
Rehm J., Baliunas D., Borges G.L.G. et al.
Addiction: 2010, 105(5), p. 817–84.
Comprehensive assessment of which diseases and other forms of ill health are caused or aggravated by drinking, how these impacts vary with the amount drunk, and whether heavy drinking occasions as well as heavy average consumption contribute to ill health.
Cook P.J., Ostermann J., Sloan F.A.
Cambridge Massachusetts: National Bureau of Economic Research, 2005.
On the basis of US state-level data, concludes that higher alcohol taxes reduce the death rate by cutting consumption. Beneficial effects of moderate drinking in middle age are more than counter-balanced by adverse effects of heavier drinking and acute deaths in younger groups.
