Development of South Australian specific aetiological fractions and estimates of alcohol-attributable morbidity and mortalities

  • Research program: Alcohol policy and strategies
  • Project status: Completed
  • Start date: March 2010
  • Expected end date: July 2011
  • Completion date: March 2011
  • Funded by: SAHS
  • Lead organisation:

NDRI will explore the feasibility of estimating alcohol-attributable ED presentations for SA using ED-specific alcohol aetiologic fractions developed by NDRI. Explore the feasibility of estimating alcohol-related emergency department presentations using time of day as a surrogate measure. Estimate alcohol-attributable ED presentations contingent on the outcomes of 1. Devise a suitable alcohol-related surrogate indicator for EDs contingent on the outcomes of 2.
