Reducing Alcohol-Related Injury and Violence in Rural Aboriginal Communities
This project will examine the cost-effectiveness of a community empowerment and positive reinforcement intervention for reducing alcohol-related injury and violence among Aboriginal people in two rural locations in New South Wales. Investigators will work with local Aboriginal Medical Services (AMS) to implement and evaluate the intervention in both of the locations.
In both target locations, the intervention aims to:
- reduce the proportion of Aboriginal people admitted to hospital for alcohol-related injury
- reduce the proportion of Aboriginal people arrested for alcohol-related violence
- reduce the proportion of Aboriginal people experiencing alcohol-related injury or violence.
