Recent activity in gambling research at the Unit
Caroline Norrie and Stephanie Bramley have been disseminating research findings
It has been a busy period for the research team working on a study which is developing a question for identifying gambling harms to individuals and affected others and piloting it in adult services in three local authorities.
HSCWRU researcher Caroline Norrie presented to an audience of over 100 people at the Current Advances in Gambling Research (CAGR) Conference, in Cardiff, 19 and 20 May, 2022. The presentation outlined study methods and progress. This new conference, only in its second year, was a great success in bringing together researchers from across the UK and internationally as well as gambling harms support organisations and people with lived experience.
The following week (26 May, 2022) Caroline presented at a webinar organised by Fast Forward, Scotland’s national youthwork organisation specialising in risk-taking behaviours and early-intervention. Over 50 people participated and joined in a lively post presentation discussion.
Finally, team member, Stephanie Bramley also presented a poster summarising the gambling study at a University of York Research study.
