WHO: Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2018

WHO: Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health 2018
https://www.who.int/substance_abuse/publications/global_alcohol_report/gsr_2018/en

Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) released their 2018 “Global status report on alcohol and health,” a study that is conducted every four years. This comprehensive study found that in 2016 about 3 million deaths per year worldwide (or approximately 5.3 percent of all deaths) are due to “harmful use of alcohol,” which is a decrease from their 2012 finding of 5.9 percent and that over “three-quarters of these deaths were among men.” WHO also found that about 5.1 percent of the overall disease and injury burden worldwide can be attributed to alcohol. In addition to its findings, this report “gives detailed information on the consumption of alcohol in populations” and describes at the national level what countries are doing to further reduce alcohol’s negative effects. Readers interested in learning more may download a PDF of the full 450-page report, which was edited by Vladimir Poznyak and Dag Rekve. WHO also provides their press release, fact sheets, and an infographic which summarizes the report’s key findings. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

SuperBetter

SuperBetter
https://www.superbetter.com

SuperBetter is a free mobile app and web platform that aims to help build personal resilience by using a video game structure to encourage and reward users for positive behavior; or, in other words, for living “gamefully.” Like many video games, SuperBetter uses Power-Ups, Quests, Bad Guys, and Allies to take players on an adventure towards achieving their Epic Win, but in this game each of those represents real-life actions players take to boost their health or moods, progress toward their goals, change bad habits into good, and support friends trying to do the same. Clinical trials conducted by the University of Pennsylvania and The Ohio State University found that SuperBetter has positive effects on its users’ resilience and mental health. SuperBetter was created by Jane McGonigal, a game designer with a PhD in Performance Studies from the University of California, Berkeley and Director of Game Research and Development at Institute for the Future.
