|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.

|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.
