National Strategy to Reduce Gambling Harms

Initiate phase 2 evaluation of GA-funded treatment system (GA)


May 2022

Longitudinal Analysis of the Impact of Treatment from the National Gambling Treatment Service (NGTS) for Tier 3 interventions is underway, with publication of report expected in July 2022.

October 2021

New research commissioned in October 2021 'Analysis of NGTS Treatment Impact (Tier 3 clients, 2018-2021)' to provide evidence of how treatment impacts clients over time. The sample size of this research (over 20,000 treatment episodes and potentially 170,000 appointments) will make this one of the largest studies of the impact of gambling treatment in the world. Research will use linear mixed effects model to analyse the longitudinal treatment data.
