The world’s first guidelines to assist vapers who want to quit vaping have been released today by the Canadian Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
The guidelines are designed for health professionals to support both adults and youth from age 15 years. They include behavioural therapies and medication and are based on approaches to stop smoking.
The guidelines have been developed from the limited research evidence available and the opinions of a group of experts in the field. I am proud to have been on the expert committee which developed these guidelines. They were commissioned by Ontario’s Ministry of Health.
