Problem gambling has negative effects on those experiencing it and their partners, children and families. As practice researchers we are dedicated to ensuring that the best preventive, harm reducing and curative approaches are devised and made available to people affected by problem gambling. We are devotees of evidence based and excellent practice and our research is premised upon making a difference.
