The use of electronic-cigarettes (vapes) among adolescents has drastically increased in recent years, making it a public health priority. Effective and scalable prevention approaches are needed to reduce the short- and long-term harms associated with vaping.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of a school-based eHealth preventive intervention targeting e-cigarette use among young Australians, using a Randomised Controlled Trial across 70 secondary schools and with 3,500 students in WA, NSW and Queensland.
