E-Cigarettes and the Challenge for Clinicians

15:50 - 16:05

Dr Hughes will present the dilemmas that clinicians face when smokers ask a) are e-cigarettes less harmful or less addicting than cigarettes, b) can they help me quit, and c) are they better than NRT for quitting and suggest concrete evidence-based answers for these questions.     Also, he will also address a) whether clinicians should discourage smokers from using e-cigarettes to quit as a first line treatment rather than NRT or varenicline, b) how comfortable should clinicians be in recommending products that currently have not passed basic manufacturing standards, and c) how different is recommending e-cigs from recommending medical marijuana?
