A feasibility study of a licensed premise intervention to reduce alcohol misuse and violent injury
The health and economic costs of alcohol misuse in the UK are estimated to be between 2% and 5% of UK gross domestic product and reflect sexual health outcomes, injury, stroke and cancer as well as lost productivity and absenteeism in the workplace. Evidence suggests that interventions targeted at licensed premises which address known risk factors (e.g. serving alcohol to intoxicated customers, irresponsible alcohol promotions, deficits in server training) can be effective in reducing the health costs associated with alcohol misuse. This project builds on the applicants' previous research by assessing the feasibility of a premises-level intervention designed to reduce alcohol misuse, and outcomes of misuse including disorder and violent injury.
