This webinar discussed how accurately measuring self-reported alcohol use is challenging in any population. These challenges are amplified when surveying populations that are culturally distinct from majority populations, or who experience discrimination and stigma, which can make conversations about drinking threatening. Futhermore, it discussed when and how the Grog Survey App was developed, and how the lessons learned from its use inform health promotion and clinical practice.
