Patient-Provider Communications on E-Cigarettes: Perceptions of safety & harm

10:50 - 11:05
-

What do patients want to know about e-cigarettes and how are clinicians responding? With e-cigarettes prevalent in the marketplace, patients are turning to health care providers for guidance. Patients’ questions center on concerns about specific side effects and harms, general safety, use as smoking quit aids, harm reduction benefits relative to combusted tobacco, use with pre-existing medical conditions, and nicotine-free options. With limited research evidence available, providers are responding the best that they can. This presentation will highlight key learnings from an analysis of online patient-provider communications on e-cigarettes and will point to resources available for health care providers to learn more.
