Expert appraisal of criteria for assessing gaming disorder: An international Delphi study

Published inAddiction Biology
Publication date2021
Abstract

Following the recognition of ‘internet gaming disorder' (IGD) as a condition requiring further study by the DSM‐5, ‘gaming disorder' (GD) was officially included as a diagnostic entity by the World Health Organization (WHO) in the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD‐11). However, the proposed diagnostic criteria for gaming disorder remain the subject of debate, and there has been no systematic attempt to integrate the views of different groups of experts. To achieve a more systematic agreement on this new disorder, this study employed the Delphi expert consensus method to obtain expert agreement on the diagnostic validity, clinical utility and prognostic value of the DSM‐5 criteria and ICD‐11 clinical guidelines for GD.
