Injury Prevention Aotearoa and CAYAD/St John of God Waipuna, are bringing high profile alcohol harm reduction campaiger, Dr Paul Quigley to Christchurch for a talk on 'Using One Injury to Prevent Another'. Anyone interested is welcome to attend this free event.

Dr Quigley will talk about the screening and brief intervention programme he helped set up at Wellington hospital's emergency department. Such is its success it is now being rolled out by other DHBs around the country.

Dr Quigley pulls no punches and gives a thought-provoking and fact-packed, lively presentation. When people have an injury related to alcohol use, it is a window of opportunity to encourage them to consider changing their drinking behaviour. The brief interventions that follow appear to be working well.

The data the hospital collects from screening is shared with local councils, police etc, and helps to show the connection between where alcohol is sold and where injuries are happening, which can be fed into Local Alcohol Plans and district licensing applications.

Come along and find out more, meet the team from Injury Prevention Aotearoa and enjoy lunch ... it's on us!
