Seminar: Alcohol and injuries: Emergency Department Studies in an International Perspective

November 19, 2015 at 2:09 PM

Special Seminar:“Alcohol and Injuries: Emergency Department Studies in an International Perspective”

Hosted by the School of Population Health and the University of Auckland’s Centre for Addiction Research (CFAR)

Presenter: Professor Cheryl Cherpitel


Thursday 3 December, 12.30-1.30pm, Function Room 730-220,

School of Population Health, University of Auckland Tāmaki Innovation Campus,

This presentation will cover the following:

  • Background on death and disability from injuries attributable to alcohol
  • Background and scope of the international collaborative ED studies on alcohol and injury
  • Examples of analysis from these studies including the dose-response relationship of alcohol and risk of injury, and the association of alcohol-related injury with individual-level and societal-level volume and pattern of drinking and alcohol-control policy
  • Other uses of these data globally

Professor Cherpitel is a senior scientist at the Public Health Institute’s Alcohol Research Group and Associate director of the US National Alcohol Research Center. She is an adjunct professor at the Berkeley's School of Public Health (University of California), and Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre on Alcohol Epidemiology and Injury. Her research includes the epidemiology of alcohol and injury in emergency room (ER) and primary care settings and in the general population, and the identification of alcohol use disorders and brief intervention in the ER. This work has resulted in the development of a brief screening instrument, the Rapid Alcohol Problems Screen (RAPS4) for problem drinking, and in the ongoing international collaboration, the Emergency Room Collaborative Alcohol . Analysis Project (ERCAAP) which includes nearly 100 sites in 30 countries.
