Monash University e-Cig Survey

GPs knowledge, attitudes and prescribing intentions for e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid
Researchers at Monash University are investigating GPs attitudes and prescribing intentions in
regards to e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid. A significant change to policy impacting the
availability of nicotine for use in e-cigarettes in Australia took effect from October 1, 2021.
This means that nicotine containing liquids for use with e-cigarettes will only be available by
prescription from a health care provider. This study will highlight information and training needs
of GPs and help guide policy and contribute to guideline development that
informs the potential role and place of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation alternative. We are
inviting Australian GPs to take part in a short 5-minute online survey that aims to understand the
current levels of general practitioner’s knowledge, attitudes, beliefs and prescribing intentions
in respect to e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation aid. Participants who complete the survey are
able to enter a prize draw to win one of three $500 gift vouchers.
