The UK trial of the highly regarded School Health and Alcohol Harm Reduction Project (SHAHRP) from Australia are now completed The research trial was called STEPS TOWARDS ALCOHOL MISUSE PREVENTION PROGRAMME (STAMPP) here in the UK.

The 5 year trial of STAMPP led by Dr Michael Mckay and Professor Harry Sunmall from Liverpool John Moores University took place in 105 schools  in Northern Ireland and Scotland and was funded by NIHR (The National Institute for Health Research). It was a cluster random control trial with schools comparing STAMPP vs alcohol education as normal.

Over 12,000 pupils took part with information collected at 4 time points. The Children receiving STAMPP had reduced self-reported drinking compared with education as normal at +33 months (p < 0.001; OR = 0.596). The trial evaluation showed that the classroom component engaged, and was enjoyed by, pupils. It was also valued by teachers for its evidence based and structured content.Learn more about the trial here.
