The purpose of the Preventing and Minimising Gambling Harm: Practitioner’s Guide (Practitioner’s Guide) is to:
- clarify aspects of the service delivery for preventing and minimising gambling harm clinical interventions
- detail the screening and clinical practice requirements for service providers.
The term ‘provider’ refers to organisations that have a preventing and minimising gambling harm (PMGH) intervention service contract with the Ministry of Health.
It is important to note that the Practitioner’s Guide is intended as a guide only. The Practitioner’s Guide indicates the Ministry of Health’s intentions for PMGH intervention services and is a guide to typical client/tangata whai ora pathways and practices.
This document is intended for the PMGH intervention service providers.
