Title:
Drinking behaviour and alcohol-related harm amongst older adults: analysis of existing UK datasets.
Authors:
Wadd, Sarah; Papadopoulos, Chris
Abstract:
Older adults experience age-related physiological changes that increase sensitivity and decrease tolerance to alcohol and there are a number of age-related harms such as falls, social isolation and elder abuse, which are compounded by alcohol misuse. Despite this unique vulnerability and the fact that the number of older adults is increasing, the literature on drinking behaviour and alcohol-related harm in older adults is sparse. This article describes a secondary analysis of UK data to address this knowledge gap.
