New Research on E-Cigarettes is Looking for Volunteers

Posted August 15th, 2013 in News by Steve

The University of Queensland and Australian National University are looking for people who currently use electronic cigarettes, or have used them in the past, to participate in a survey to gather information about their experiences. Health E-Cigarette Australia was recently contacted by Mr Doug Fraser, a research assistant at the University of Queensland, and asked if we could help to find recruits by posting some information about the research on our website as well as a link to where people who are interested in participating can sign up.

The email reads: “The University of Queensland and the Australian National University are currently planning to conduct research looking at the experiences and opinions of people who have used electronic cigarettes. At the moment we are gathering interest from people who would be willing to participate in an online survey later in the year. Researchers at the University of Queensland and Australian National University would like to conduct research with people who use electronic cigarettes or other novel nicotine delivery systems to better understand their experiences with these products. If you have used an electronic cigarette or similar product and are interested in participating in research on this topic, please follow the URL link to a confidential online form to register your interest by providing your contact details (e.g. email address). When a research study on this topic is ready to start, the researchers will then send you an invitation with more details about the study so that you can decide if you would like to participate in the study. Your contact details will not be shared with anyone else and will not be used for any purpose other than to send you invitations to participate in research on this topic.”

This is great news. This will be the first study in Australia about peoples’ experiences with electronic cigarettes. We hope that as many people as possible will sign up to participate in the study and improve the scientific information that we have on e-cigarettes as a quit smoking product.
