Vaporised Nicotine for Smoking Cessation: Why and How?

Date: 04-11-2020 19:00:00

When Wednesday 4th November 2020, 7pm to 9pm
Where Online Webinar (Registration Link Below)

In Australia, the use of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) – commonly called vaping - remains controversial, however, three Australian medical colleges have now given support to ENDS for smoking cessation in cases where other treatments have failed. 

Vaping devices can be bought legally but nicotine has to be imported, which is illegal without a doctor’s prescription. Currently, few doctors prescribe nicotine liquid for ENDS. This seminar will look at the evidence for use of ENDS including safety issues, & in practical terms how to prescribe nicotine liquid & to advise sourcing the product. We will also discuss HARMONY, a NSW clinical trial of ENDS for smoking cessation in people receiving opioid treatment.

Joining Prof Paul Haber and Dr Richard Hallinan in on the conversation will be the following presenters: A/Professor Colin Mendelsohn, Dr Carolyn Beaumont, Prof Adrian Dunlop and Prof Billie Bonevski.
