Youth and Vaping: Where Do We Go From Here?
The NDS hosted a Facebook Live discussion about youth and vaping on November 28, 2019. The constantly evolving landscape around vaping has made it difficult to provide evidence-based and relevant advice to youth and their families. Our expert panel—including youth and physicians—will unpack some of the uncertainty around the subject in a live question-and-answer format. Topics will include: • How to identify signs of vaping addiction • Strategies to reduce risks associated with vaping • How to engage in a conversation with youth about vaping. You can access the event recording here.

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.
