 Risky Alcohol Use Study in Male-dominated Industries

Implementing support, well-being and testing interventions aimed at reducing risky alcohol use among men can be done at workplace as it provides an ideal environment. By targeting male-dominated industries, in particular, alcohol screening and prevention efforts may be effective in reducing alcohol use, according to a Review article in Journal of Men's Health, a peer-reviewed publication from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available free on the Journal of Men's Health website.

A team of Australian researchers led by Nicole Lee, PhD, Flinders University (Adelaide), Curtin University (Perth), and University of Melbourne, reviewed studies that evaluated the outcomes of interventions for risky alcohol consumption within male-dominated industries. The authors report that interventions are feasible in this environment, and they detail which types of interventions were effective and which were less likely to yield positive outcomes.
