$179 / year

The World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), developed the Global Health Professions Student Survey (GHPSS) to collect data on tobacco use and cessation counseling among health professional students in all WHO member states.

Complexity

GHPSS is a standardized school-based survey of third-year students pursuing advanced degrees in dentistry, medicine, nursing, or pharmacy. It is conducted in schools during regular class sessions. GHPSS follows an anonymous, self-administered format for data collection. The GHPSS (Global Health Professions Student Survey) is a school-based survey of third-year students pursuing advanced degrees in dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy. The GHPSS uses a core questionnaire on demographics, prevalence of cigarette smoking and other tobacco use, knowledge and attitudes about tobacco use, exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke, willingness to stop smoking, and training received regarding patient counseling on smoking cessation techniques. The GHPSS has a standardized methodology for selecting participating schools and classes and has uniform data processing procedures.

The GHPSS pilot study consisted of 16 surveys conducted in ten countries in four health professional disciplines (dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy) during the first quarter of 2005. The sample population were students from Albania (dental, medical, nursing, and pharmacy), Argentina (medical), Bangladesh (dental), Croatia (medical), Egypt (medical), Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (nursing), India (dental), the Philippines (pharmacy), the Republic of Serbia (dental, medical, and pharmacy), and Uganda (medical and nursing).
