Overview

Despite a growing body of research on electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), there has been much debate about the effects of their use. While there may be potential for e-cigarettes to support smoking cessation, there are also concerns about possible adverse health effects, renormalization of smoking and tobacco uptake among youth, and other unforeseen consequences of their use.

This webinar will provide an overview of a multi-component research study of e-cigarettes, including:

  • A systematic review of the literature related to their health effects and effectiveness as a cessation aid
  • A review of e-cigarette use in Ontario
  • Findings from a panel of adult smokers and a survey of youth and young adults on their perception and use of e-cigarettes
  • A social media analysis of e-cigarette message exposure, reach and content

Presenters:

Dr. Robert Schwartz – OTRU Executive Director, Associate Professor, University of Toronto
