Description: This is a pre-registered e-Delphi consensus study co-ordinated by Public Health England (researchregistry6205). An initial scoping phase will identify gambling-specific measures, as well as those with a track record of effectiveness in other areas of public health. Then, across sequential rounds of an online questionnaire, an independent, multidisciplinary, and anonymous panel of gambling experts will rate the potential effectiveness of each measure for preventing and reducing gambling harms. Consensus threshold will be achieved if at least 70% of the panel rate the measure as effective or have the potential to be effective. The APEASE framework will be used to identify which measures are likely to have the greatest impact for public health in England
