The P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth) program began at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in August 2010. The target group is 15 to 19 year olds as this a developmental period where adolescents often increase their risk-taking propensities, experiment with alcohol and learn to drive. It is acknowledged that the experience of participants in a school-based setting is likely to be different from that in the hospital.
The purpose of this research was to examine data provided by the P.A.R.T.Y. program administrators from hospital and school sites in Queensland, in order to determine participant outcomes of program involvement. Additionally, this research examined program delivery across sites to determine whether there are differences across sites and delivery styles that may influence program outcomes.
