Role of Health Care in Addressing Unhealthy Alcohol Use and Disparities among Aging Women

The use of alcohol among older women, particularly binge drinking, has been steadily increasing in recent years, leaving them vulnerable to associated health conditions. This mixed methods study uses KPNC’s EHR based alcohol registry and screening data to examine unhealthy alcohol use, and disparities in use, in women over age 50. We will also examine patterns of health care utilization associated with select health conditions among older women with unhealthy alcohol use and conduct qualitative interviews with addiction medicine staff about the changing needs of older women with unhealthy alcohol use.
