Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest

The Gambling, Gaming & Technology Use Community of Interest brings together addiction and mental health service providers, researchers and subject matter experts in the fields of gambling, technology/Internet use and video gaming to collaborate and share knowledge on emerging trends and clinical best practices.

There is a distinct scarcity of research on problem gambling in the older population (+ 55 years of age) despite a steady increase in prevalence rates (see Matheson et al., JGI, 39, 43-61). In this special issue of the Journal of Gambling Issues (JGI), released in September 2018, a work group funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Gambling Research Exchange Ontario, summarize recent work in this field and identify paths for future study. Contributions include manuals on Best Practices for the prevention and treatment of problem gambling in the older population, scoping reviews, and original research from experts at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, and other institutions.
