This publication arises from the Joint Action on Reducing Alcohol Related Harm (RARHA) which has received funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Health Programme (2008-2013).
The publication synthesizes work done in the EU Joint Action RARHA to identify good practice principles for the use of low risk drinking guidelines as a public health tool. Using the lifetime mortality risk from exposure to alcohol as the metric is suggested as a way towards a common concept of “low” risk. Further topics addressed include uses of the “standard drink” concept and the provision of consumer information on alcoholic beverages, guidance to reduce alcohol-related harm for young people, and recommendations for the integration of early identification and brief intervention for alcohol use disorders (EIBI) into routine clinical practice in primary health care.
