Alcohol intake in middle-aged Australian women and access to primary health care services


The purpose of this project will be to explore the relationship between middle-aged Australian women who drink alcohol above the recommended amount and access to primary health care services. We will analyse Survey 8 of the 1973-78 cohort to identify if and how frequently these women access primary health care services. The assumption being that if general practitioners are to opportunistically screen and undertake appropriate interventions with these women, we must first establish whether or not they attend primary health care.
