CCSA conducted focus groups on five Canadian post-secondary campuses (110 participants), screening students for heavy episodic drinking to participate. We asked students for their ideas on how to address heavy episodic drinking. Their recommendations for students, campuses and communities are featured in the report, Heavy Episodic Drinking among Post-secondary Students: Influencing Factors and Implications.
Participants in the study suggested a combination of peer-to-peer education and factual information from respected older adults to reduce the harms of heavy episodic drinking on campus. Those who work with students in post-secondary settings can use this data to inform and reinforce their work to reduce heavy episodic drinking on campuses.
