A woman looking thoughtful

This course aims to raise awareness and understanding of gambling harms amongst healthcare professionals. It will highlight that gambling carries a risk and can cause significant harm not only to the individual gambling but also to those around them. It will equip the learner with the skills to identify those experiencing harm and will aim to reduce the stigma related to gambling disorder. Finally it will provide the  information and resources needed to access support and treatment for an individual experiencing gambling harms.

Your GP practice will automatically be eligible for accreditation once a member of your clinical team has completed the Gambling Harms eLearning course. Please note this must be a member of the clinical team who can make patient referrals. This team member will then be named as the Gambling Harms practice lead.    

An educational grant was received from GambleAware for the production of the course. Editorial and content decisions were made solely by the RCGP.
