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.


You are invited 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.
