3 months
Approved budget:
Ms Patricia Grogan
Health issue:
Addiction (alcohol/drugs/gambling/smoking)
Proposal type:
Māori Health Summer Studentship
Lay summary
The main rationale for the project is to investigate the current state of the literature on indigenous women and problem gambling. A primary motivation is to understand how gambling problems, particularly amongst Maori and indigenous women, can have downstream effects on the health and wellbeing of affected children. The studentship will involve designation of search terms for literature databases and relevant websites, with thematic analysis of the findings and completion of a literature review. The review aims to make recommendations for further research.
