Understanding the Causes of Harms
The ELAStiC (Electronic Longitudinal Alcohol Study in Communities) project was established to determine factors that predict pathways into alcohol misuse and the life-course effects of alcohol use and misuse on health and well-being.
The National Violence Surveillance Network has over 100 (types 1, 2 and 4) Emergency Departments in England and Wales providing data on violence-related attendances on an annual basis.
This project will invite 4,000 European university students who participate in the Erasmus programme to study abroad to complete an anonymous online questionnaire to measure their drinking behaviour.
‘The Cardiff Model’ was conceived by Professor Shepherd when he found that police forces were unaware of most violence related incidents that resulted in emergency hospital treatment.
The ‘Assessing the Causes of Alcohol-Fuelled Violence’ project is conducting research into the impact of overoptimism bias on alcohol consumption and alcohol related violence.
