Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study

Have you ever used the PATH Study data or heard about it? If so, we would like to hear from you! The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) and the NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) would like to invite you to share your experiences in using the PATH Study data.

As a reminder, the PATH Study is a household-based, nationally representative, longitudinal cohort study of youth (12-17 years old) and adults in the United States. The study was launched in 2011 to inform FDA’s regulatory activities under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.

The survey will take no longer than 15 minutes, and your answers will inform us on how to make your experience using the data even better.

Thank you in advance for your valuable insights and your time.  For any questions, please contact nahdap@icpsr.umich.edu.

Brown University Addiction Counselors Using Technology Online Survery

Brown University’s Center for Alcohol and Addictions Studies (CAAS) is currently conducting an online study about the views of addictions counselors toward the use of technology in treatment. They’re interested in learning more about whether counselors have used or recommended various technologies, like websites, smartphone apps, VR, etc., in their counseling practice, either by recommending their clients use them or by collaboratively using them in session. They hope that the data collected in this study will help them discover better ways to encourage counselors to use these technologies as they treat clients with alcohol/drug problems.

The study involves an online survey that takes about 30 minutes, can be completed entirely online, and they’ll provide those who complete all of it with a $15 Amazon gift card via email. They can usually issue this within 72 hours of participants finishing the survey. To be eligible, participants must: (1) have a Master’s degree or higher, (2) be currently licensed to provide counseling, (3) provide alcohol/drug counseling directly to patients for a substantial portion of their typical work week (at least 25%), and (4) practice in the United States.
