Maternal Alcohol Reduction Interventions (MARI): coproducing support for women, to improve health and reduce alcohol harm

18 Sep. 2024

This presentation will give an overview of women’s alcohol use and harm across the life course, discussing how the role of alcohol changes during different life stages. Introducing some work funded by the UK’s National Institute of Health Research; coproducing digital and non-digital public health interventions to support women’s adherence to relevant guidelines during pregnancy and motherhood. Highlighting women’s lived experience of drinking during maternal periods, and the need for individual and system-based approaches to compassionately support women to make informed decisions about their drinking behaviour. 


Discussing the drivers of women’s alcohol use (e.g., psychological, societal) the webinar will provide an opportunity to discuss similarities and differences across the UK and Australia. 
Talking about the benefits and challenges of coproducing research will facilitate discussion on how we can improve this aspect of our research, ensuring our outputs (e.g., interventions) are both evidence-based and practically useful to future users.

Outlining both individual and system-based approaches, this webinar will enable discussion on how we can be more effective in influencing system-based approaches (which are needed to tackle major issues, such as health inequalities).
