Researchers from the University of Melbourne, Swinburne University and Cancer Council Victoria invite you to take part in an interview (face-to face, online or over the phone) to ask you questions about the benefits and disadvantages of smoking tobacco and what may help people with MS to quit smoking if they are interested in doing so. The interview will take no more than 60 minutes and you will receive a $30 gift card in return.
We would like to interview people with MS who currently smoke or who may have stopped in the last 2 years.
