Alcohol consumption is a major public health concern in the UK as alcohol misuse is a significant source of short- and long-term health issues and social problems. While there has been a considerable amount of research into the factors that lead to alcohol misuse, the extent and impact of many of these factors is not yet fully understood.
Dr Ines Henriques-Cadby and her colleagues in the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group are working to better understand these factors, in particular, the public health impact of geographical alcohol availability and its associations to behaviours of consumption and misuse. Ines’s work focuses on the spatial relationship with harm and consumption, and the relationship between demographics and the types of outlets that are responsible for harm and problematic consumption.
The ultimate goal of this research is to increase the effectiveness of policy making and to feed into the work undertaken by many public services affected by alcohol misuse.
