Protocol - Electronic Nicotine Product Device Type

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

Interviewer administered Likert style questions that are asked of people who have ever used any e-product(s)

Protocol:

The next questions are about electronic nicotine products, such as e-cigarettes, vape pens, hookah pens, personal vaporizers and mods, e-cigars, e-pipes, and e-hookahs. These products are battery-powered and produce vapor instead of smoke. They typically use a nicotine liquid, although the amount of nicotine can vary and some may not contain any nicotine at all. Some common brands include Fin, NJOY, Blu, e-Go and Vuse.

1. Which of the following electronic nicotine products have you used? Choose all that apply.

[ ] 1 E-cigarette including vape pens, hookah pens, personal vaporizers, and mods

[ ] 2 E-cigar

[ ] 3 E-pipe

[ ] 4 E-hookah

[ ] 5 Something else (SPECIFY)

[ ] -8 DON’T KNOW

[ ] -7 REFUSED

The next questions are about E-cigarettes.

Some E-cigarettes can be bought as one-time, disposable products, while others can be bought as reusable kits with a cartridge or tank system. Some people refill their own E-cigarettes with nicotine fluid, sometimes called "e-liquid" or "e-juice".

Disposable E-cigarettes, E-cigarette cartridges and e-liquid come in many different flavors and nicotine concentrations. Some common brands include Fin, NJOY, Blu, e-Go and Vuse.

Please think only about E-cigarettes as you answer these questions.

Protocol Name from Source:

Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study: Wave 3

Availability:

Publicly available

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

Equipment Needs

The PhenX Tobacco Regulatory Research Panel acknowledges these questions can be administered in a computerized or non-computerized format (i.e., paper-and-pencil instrument). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer/handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire

Requirements
Requirement CategoryRequired
Major equipment No
Specialized training No
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection No
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual No
Mode of Administration

Interviewer-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Adolescent, Adult, Senior, Pregnancy

Participants:

≥12 years of age

Specific Instructions:

"Not light" e-product users are users of e-cigarettes that don’t need to be lit (e.g. PROVIDE EXAMPLES). These questions are asked only of people who have ever used e-products, so this must be ascertained before administering these questions.

Selection Rationale

The protocol from the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study was selected because this study is the most comprehensive study on tobacco use in the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States. The PATH Study is a longitudinal cohort study that includes tobacco product specific use questions and is administered to individuals aged 12 years and older. PATH Wave 3 was selected because it most comprehensively assesses multiple electronic nicotine delivery systems.
