Unpacking Vaping in Schools Study
The aim of the Unpacking Vaping in Schools study was to determine (1) the perceived knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of e-cigarette use in adolescents, and (2) effective e-cigarette prevention strategies for adolescents.
To do this, PERU engaged students, school staff and parents/ carers from high schools in greater western Sydney in separate consultation sessions. The student and school staff sessions involved a combination of interactive activities, small-group brainstorming, and opportunities for open discussion.
Most parent/ carer sessions were held over Zoom and utilized a focus group format to allow for in-depth discussion.
