Booze and Baby Boomers: the new risk group

20 September 2019

Listen to Professor Ann Roche's interview with The Wire about concerns that risky alcohol consumption among older Australians across three different age demographics (50-59, 60-69 and 70+) was being largely overlooked by health care professionals, policy makers, and carers. Tailored strategies are needed to identify the indicators of alcohol-related problems and risk perceptions for their older clients, whilst providing age-appropriate responses and guidelines.

The findings were also presented at the recent Australian Public Health Conference in Adelaide.
