Protocol - Flavor Preference - e-cigarettes - Youth

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

This is a 5-item youth questionnaire to determine flavor preference when using e-cigarettes.

Specific Instructions:

Determine age and e-cigarette smoking status prior to administration.

*ECIGFILL = e-cigarettes, e-cigarette cartridges, e-liquid (depends on what type of e-cigarette participant endorsed using)

Although this question only asks about the use of cigarettes, the Biobehavioral Working Group feels that these questions can be asked about other tobacco products including e-cigarettes, hookah, and snuff. Specify each product you are looking for (e.g., cigarettes, cigars [large cigars, cigarillos, and little filtered cigars], pipes, hookah, e-cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, dissolvables, bidis, and kreteks).
