Alcohol Occasionals 2021: Managed alcohol programmes (MAPs)

Alcohol Occasionals 2021: Managed alcohol programmes (MAPs)

We warmly invite you to join us online on Tuesday 1 June from 12:30-14:00 BST for our fifth SHAAP/SARN Alcohol Occasionals event of 2021.

Managed alcohol programmes (MAPs) are a harm reduction approach for those experiencing alcohol use disorders (AUD) and homelessness. These programmes were developed in Canada and have had positive results; but very few exist in the UK and Ireland. Dr Hannah Carver and Dr Tessa Parkes (University of Stirling) will present the findings from two CSO-funded studies on the feasibility and acceptability of implementing MAPs in Scotland, and we will then open to Q+A and wider discussion.

Hannah is a Lecturer in Substance Use in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Stirling and Deputy Director of the Salvation Army Centre for Addiction Services and Research at the University of Stirling.

Tessa is Research Director for the Salvation Army Centre for Addiction Services and Research at the University of Stirling where she leads a number of research and knowledge exchange projects focused on the reduction of harms and promotion of health and well-being for those impacted by social and health inequalities.

The webinar will be hosted online using the Zoom platform, and registrants will receive a link to join.

Alcohol Occasionals are free to attend and open to all, and our audience is diverse, including academics/researchers, healthcare professionals, policy-makers and members of the public.
