Prevent Vaping - Education Module For Teenagers
The OurFutures Vaping prevention program is the first trial of a school-based eHealth prevention program targeting adolescent e-cigarette use in Australia.
Based on the best available evidence and aligned with the Health and Physical Education curriculum, the OurFutures Vaping Program aims to empower young people to say no to e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes and improve their health and wellbeing.
The program is being evaluated in a cluster randomised controlled trial with 40 schools across NSW, QLD and WA. This is the first rigorous evaluation of a school-based vaping prevention program in Australia.
Some important information about the trial.
- There are other vaping prevention programs in Australia however, they are not evaluated as extensively as ours is. Our trial is the gold standard.
- The trial is currently in 3 states (NSW, WA, Qld)
- We expect to have ~5,000 students complete baseline survey (currently being completed)
- 50% of the students will receive the intervention whilst the other 50% will be in the control group
We are forecasting finishing the trial at the end of 2023 with data collection and peer reviews following before releasing the program to Australian schools.
We have launched an early access scheme for up to 250 schools to get access to the vaping module in 2024 so please get in touch if you’d like to register or express an interest in our early access program or updates on our trial.
