Alcohol, Trauma and Impaired Driving is a report led by MADD Canada, in partnership with CAMH, which grew out of MADD Canada’s ongoing public education and research projects.
The primary purpose of this report is to provide a single, fully referenced source of current facts on alcohol related trauma. While the report focuses on Canada, data has also been included on the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and to a lesser extent Europe and New Zealand. More information has been included from other jurisdictions when that data was current and comprehensive, or when the Canadian data was not as detailed as desired. Although the international data must be used with caution, it provides a perspective in assessing how well Canada has fared in addressing certain alcohol-related problems.
CAMH Scientists Scott MacDonald and Robert Mann reviewed the reports from a scientific perspective and CAMH's Public Education and Information Services area has taken on responsibility for dissemination of the document to media and key stakeholders.
