dc.description.abstractIn this paper, we review the nursing empirical literature on alcohol and women‟s health published over the last five years (2005 to 2010). A total of 36 data-based papers authored by nurse investigators met eligibility criteria and were included in this review. Most were single studies by individual nurse investigators; few studies reflected ongoing programs of research related to alcohol and women‟s health. Studies were categorized into four main groups including; 1) determinants of alcohol use and alcohol problems, 2) patterns of use, assessment of alcohol use, and comorbidity; 3) consequences of alcohol use, and, 4) the effects of treatment or specific interventions and the contributions of nursing research to the knowledge base of each group are summarized. Then, we propose a research agenda for nursing that addresses the most pressing issues related to alcohol use and alcohol problems in women.en
