Description
Youth and Vaping: Where Do We Go From Here?
The NDS is hosting a Facebook Live discussion about youth and vaping on November 28, 2019 7-8PM. Access the event here. 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.
To vape or not vape? CAMH experts vaporize the uncertainty!
The NDS TEACH Project presented an Expert Panel Q&A On Vaping on October 7th 2019 from 12:00-1:00pm to help practitioners learn more about vaping and what we should do while we wait for the evidence. The webinar was recorded and is available for viewing ! For more information, please contact: teach@camh.ca or call 416-535-8501, x31600.
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.
