  • Research program:
  • Project status: Completed
  • Start date:
  • Expected end date: January 1992
  • Completion date: January 1992
  • Funded by: See Projects 27, 28, 29 & 30.
  • Lead organisation:

A series of linked studies was initiated in January 1989. The aims of the research are to: (i) develop reliable indicators of alcohol related harm at the level of the individual premises; (ii) identify the characteristics of both high and low risk drinking environments; (iii) assess public support for various prevention strategies which have shown promise elsewhere; (iv) disseminate these findings with a view to stimulating an appraisal of the options available to trade associations, licensing authorities, police and health officials for responding to the problem; and (v) evaluate the effectiveness of any systematic change in policy or practice which is intended to have significant impact upon licensed drinking settings in Perth.
