New CIHR Grant at the NDS!
A collaborative team of Scientists at the CAMH NDS, spearheaded by Dr. Dolly Baliunas, University of Toronto, and ICES were the successful recipients of a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Project Grant! This project will compare health and healthcare use between groups of smokers from three sources: a database of patients who received STOP smoking cessation treatment, a population-based comparison group of smokers who did not receive STOP smoking cessation treatment, and population-based healthcare databases. Findings from this work can help inform debates concerning how to best implement smoking cessation services within the publicly funded healthcare system in Ontario.
E-Cigarettes Research Study at the NDS
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) invites people who regularly use electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) only or alongside smoking tobacco cigarettes to participate in a study looking at differences of nicotine and other substances found in their urine. For more information, please visit this webpage.
E-Cigarettes Resources
CAMH NDS is currently reviewing the evidence on e-cigarettes and vaping (ENDS) and will be developing recommendations to help inform our approach to addressing ENDS use among our clients. These will focus on the potential benefits and risks of using ENDS, the efficacy of these products on tobacco cessation and how to discuss these products with clients. In the meantime, here are some resources to provide guidance: Health Canada Consultations on The Future of Tobacco Control , Public Health Ontario Literature Review on E-Cig , OTRU Report on E-Cig Use For Smoking Cessation , An Evidence Update on E-Cig by Public Health England
