Predictors of Alcohol use and Consequences in Transgender (PACT) Adults Study – #108

Title: Predictors of Alcohol use and Consequences in Transgender (PACT) Adults Study

Description: The purpose of the research study is to better understand (1) factors that affect alcohol use among transgender adults who drink, and (2) harms associated with this alcohol use. If you choose to participate in this study, you will be asked to complete an online Baseline Session over a video call, which will include completing a survey with the platform Qualtrics. This Baseline Session and Qualtrics survey will mostly focus on brief demographic information, hormone therapy, stage in transition (social, physical, and/or legal), as well as more detailed measures of mental health and alcohol and other substance use (nicotine, cannabis, other drugs). Afterwards, over 21 days, you will be asked to complete surveys on a smartphone at various times each day. These surveys will mostly assess your alcohol and other substance use, and any related outcomes/experiences. Finally, you will be asked to complete an Exit Survey using Qualtrics. This survey will mostly ask for feedback about your experiences in the study.

Study Population:
Adults who live in Canada, are of legal drinking age in the province/territory they reside (i.e. 18-19+), who identify as trans and/or under the trans umbrella (e.g., non-binary, genderfluid, agender, etc.), and drink alcohol regularly are welcome.

Participant Obligation:
Screening survey to determine eligibility. Eligible participants will be invited to a 2-hr Baseline appointment over Google Meets. Following this, 3 weeks of daily surveys (up to 10 mins/day) and an optional Exit Survey.
