Abstract [en]

Despite being considered a public health problem, no prevention programme for problem gambling in workplace settings has been scientifically evaluated. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of a problem gambling (PG) prevention programme in a workplace setting. It was hypothesised that the workplace PG prevention programme will result in (1) managers reporting a higher inclination to engage in a conversation with an employee when suspicion or worry about PG arises, (2) an increase in the employees’ knowledge about where in the workplace one might get support regarding problem gambling, (3) an increased number of early interventions by the managers (eg, engage in a conversation) to help employees with PG or other types of harmful use, (4) managers and employees engaging in more sustainable gambling practices as measured by sum of Problem Gambling Severity Index (PGSI) scores, (5) fewer cases of PG among managers and employees as measured by PGSI categories and (6) managers reporting being more confident in handling gambling and PG in the workplace.Ten organisations, with a total of n=549 managers and n=8572 employees, were randomised to either receiving a prevention programme or to a waitlist control condition. Measurements was collected at the baseline and 3, 12 after intervention. At the time of the EASG-conference 12-month follow-up data will be available in addition to the already collected post-assessment data (analyzed according to the intention-to-treat principle).
