Protocol - Exposures from Hobbies

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The respondent is asked several questions about specific hobbies which he or she participated in for 6 months or longer. If the respondent has participated in one or more of the hobbies, he or she is asked additional questions about when the hobby started, how long it lasted, the overall time period, and the number of hours per week or month.

Protocol:

1. Have you ever participated for 6 months or longer in (HOBBY)?

2. In what year were you first involved in (HOBBY)?

3. In what year were you last involved in (HOBBY)?

4. Overall, for how many years were you involved in (HOBBY)?

5. On average, about how many hours per week, month, or year have you participated in (HOBBY)?

Protocol Name from Source:

Long Island Breast Cancer Study

Availability:

Publicly available

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews.* The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

* There are multiple modes to administer this question (e.g., paper-and-pencil and computer-assisted interviews).

Equipment Needs

While the source instrument was administered in-person via a paper-and-pencil instrument, the PhenX Working Group acknowledges that these questions can be administered in a computerized format (i.e., computer-assisted personal interview). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer or handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Requirements
Requirement CategoryRequired
Major equipment No
Specialized training No
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection No
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual No
Mode of Administration

Interviewer-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Adult

Participants:

Adult 18+

Specific Instructions:

None

Selection Rationale

This protocol was chosen because it includes several common hobbies that may lead to potentially hazardous exposures. It also captures information about length of time spent on the hobby. Note that the hobby-related exposure data from the Long Island Breast Cancer Study has not been published.

Research Domain Information
Measure Name:

Exposures from Hobbies

Release Date:

May 31, 2016

Definition

Questions about particular hobbies in which the respondent participated in for 6 months or longer.

Purpose

Many hobbies involve the use of volatile organic compounds such as paints, solvents, gasoline, or glues and adhesives that can cause adverse health effects such as eye, nose, and throat irritation; headaches; dizziness; loss of coordination; damage to the liver, kidneys, or nervous system; and even cancer. Other dangerous hobbies include the use of lead (e.g., making stained glass or fishing sinkers). By determining a person’s hobbies, a researcher may identify a potential cause of an exposure or an illness.

Keywords

Environmental exposures, exposures, hobbies, chemicals, volatile organic compounds, VOCs, solvents, paint, glue, stained glass, headaches, dizziness, nervous system damage
