The University of Sydney's Community Gambling Survey

The University of Sydney is conducting a study, led by Professor Alex Blaszczynski, Ms. Kirsten Shannon, and Dr. Fadi Anjoul, on harm minimisation.  The study, funded by the NSW Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing, is seeking the assistance of gamblers and their family members to complete a brief 15 - 20 minute online questionnaire about gambling behaviour and the use of harm minimisation services.  This information will be used to better inform responsible gambling policies.  Responses are completely anonymous.
