Alcohol, Problems, Policy & Practice /

5th - 9th February 2018

Looking to 2018:

After sucessfully running the module for two years, we are delighted to announce the Alcohol, Problems, Policy and Practice module will return again in 2018 to King's College London. In 2018 we have confirmed a large number of top class speakers to discuss important areas of this public health issue. With topics ranging from alcohol and pregnancy, alcohol marketing and brief interventions, we can guarantee this course is invaluable to anyone working in this area.

MAIN AIMS OF THE MODULE:

• Enhance students’ understanding of research methods by focusing on current research in alcohol policy and interventions.
• Enable critical appraisal of evidence in alcohol policy interventions.
• Explore the role and perspectives of key stakeholders including the alcohol industry and the role of media and marketing in alcohol use.
