What do I ask? | Prepare
It is almost impossible to tell which of your pre-teen, adolescent, and young adult patients may be exposed to vaping or are vaping themselves. The vaping phenomenon has impacted youth of all backgrounds, so screening everyone is the only way to reliably identify those at highest risk for nicotine dependence.
Although there are several options available for screening, we recommend the following quick, validated screening tools for this purpose.
Both tools are available as self-administered questionaires or as in-person interviews; each clinician can decide which best fits their practice resources and demands.
