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 Torbacco 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
