Social enterprise, the Behaviour Change Collaborative, conducted two iterative stages of exploratory intervention research with 92 Western Australian teenagers in school years 7 to 12.

The project’s aim was to provide understanding of teen vaping behaviour, informed through lived experience. The researchers explored teenagers’ knowledge, perceptions, beliefs and attitudes, and the interpersonal and contextual influences on vaping amongst this young cohort whom we refer to as Gen Vape.

The research was funded by Healthway WA.
