William Gilmore, Tanya Chikritzhs, Tim Stockwell, David Jernigan, Timothy Naimi & Ian Gilmore •   2016
This Perspective will outline the scale of the global alcohol problem, the wide-ranging effects of alcohol and the most effective evidence-based strategies to effect a population-level reduction in harm. We will also highlight how clinicians can be good public health advocates and the available downstream strategies they can implement while we wait for governments to take the necessary action.

Australian Burden of Disease Study: impact and causes of illness and death in Australia 2011

Australian Institute of Health & Welfare (AIHW) •   2016
This report analyses the impact of nearly 200 diseases and injuries in terms of living with illness (non-fatal burden) and premature death (fatal burden). The study found that chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, mental and substance use disorders, and musculoskeletal conditions, along with injury contributed the most burden in Australia in 2011. Almost one third of the overall disease burden could be prevented by removing exposure to risk factors such as tobacco use, high body mass, alcohol use, physical inactivity and high blood pressure.

L. Wolfenden A B E, M. Kingsland A B, B. Rowland C, P. Dodds A, M. Sidey D, S. Sherker D and J. Wiggers A B •   2016
The aim of this study was to assess the impact of an alcohol management intervention on community sporting club revenue (total annual income) and membership (number of club players, teams and spectators). This study found no evidence to suggest that efforts to reduce alcohol-related harm in community sporting clubs will compromise club revenue and membership.
