The evidence on e-cigarettes for smoking cessation: when is enough enough?
Time: 10:55 am - 11:10 am
Date: May 25
The evidence on the use of e-cigarettes to help adults who smoke quit combustible tobacco is growing year on year. Cochrane reviews are accepted as the gold-standard for investigating the evidence of potential harms and benefits of healthcare interventions. This talk will cover the most recent evidence from the Cochrane living systematic review of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation, highlighting gaps in the evidence as well as areas where certainty is growing. It will also cover other, non-Cochrane evidence, evaluating strengths and weaknesses of the different evidence available, and exploring where research might best serve to move the conversation forward.
