Global Health Professions Student Survey (GHPSS):

The GHPSS is part of the Global Tobacco Surveillance System (GTSS) designed by the World Health Organization, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and the Canadian Public Health Association to assist countries in establishing tobacco control surveillance and monitoring programmes. 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. GHPSS uses a core questionnaire on demographics, prevalence of cigarette smoking and other tobacco use, knowledge and attitudes about tobacco use, exposure to secondhand smoke, desire for smoking cessation, and training received regarding patient counseling on smoking cessation techniques.
