The UCL Department of Behavioural Science & Health and the UCL Centre for Behaviour Change, in collaboration with Action on Smoking and Health, Cancer Research UK and Public Health England, is launching a new survey about HEalth BEhaviours in relation to COvid-19 (HEBECO Study). This study will inform the development of support to help people make health-protective changes to their behaviours at the time of this and future pandemics.
The focus of this survey is on tobacco use, nicotine use (vaping), exercise, diet and alcohol use. The study aims to recruit UK adults to answer an online 20-minute survey now, and then a shorter 10-minute survey after 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. The study is GDPR compliant and has been approved by the University ethics committee (UCL Ethics: CEHP/2020/579).
