10:35 - 10:50
Youth Initiation and Smoking Cessation
The vaping market has evolved over the past year, including changes to the regulatory status of vaping products in Canada and the emergence of nicotine salt products. The extent to which these developments have influenced youth vaping remains a topic of concern and debate within the public health community. The presentation will examine changes in vaping among youth between 2017 and 2018 in Canada, the US, and England using data from the International Tobacco Control (ITC) Youth Tobacco and Vaping Survey. The ITC youth survey was conducted with 23,928 youth aged 16 to 17 across the three countries, and provides detailed information on youth smoking, vaping, and product use. The presentation will examine changes patterns of vaping between 2017and 2018, as well as the use of JUUL and other nicotine salt brands among youth. The presentation will consider the policy implications, including potential regulatory measures announced in Canada and the US that seek to minimize vaping among youth.
