The OurFutures Vaping Program is a school-based eHealth program co-designed with young people, teachers, and experts in the field, to prevent vaping and cigarette smoking among adolescents.

The program is being evaluated in a cluster randomised controlled trial with 42 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 are hoping to open up to other states.
  • We have had 1900 students already complete the baseline survey so far
  • We are still recruiting in WA (4 spots left) and NSW (1 spot left).
