risk factor for premature death and
disabilities, including chronic
conditions, such as cirrhosis of the
liver along with acute events such
as road crashes, injury, and
violence
• Alcohol is carcinogenic:
there is no safe lower limit to the
risk of cancer associated with
alcohol consumption

Communications Best Practices8
• Computer or web-based interventions have been shown to be
effective in reducing drinking behaviour, particularly among:
• Youth
• High-risk drinkers
• General population
• Students within university and college settings
• Media interventions have little effect on reducing alcohol
consumption among women, youth and the general population
• Media interventions have been shown to be effective in increasing
alcohol-related knowledge and awareness among women
21
Communications Best Practices8
• Social norm campaigns have been
shown to be effective in modifying
normative perceptions,
• Social norm campaigns have mixed
evidence on their effectiveness for
behavioural consequences among
students within college and
university settings.
• Public health practitioners can help
to address the gap in research
evidence by evaluating relevant
interventions in this population.
