The NCSCT (National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training) have published a briefing on Electronic Cigarettes in terms of their safety and effectiveness. It looks at what role stop smoking services might have in relation to electronic cigarettes and how they should respond to enquiries about them from smokers.
Written by leading academics and clinicians this briefing represents the most comprehensive and current summary of the available evidence on e-cigarettes.
This document includes:
- Executive summary: Looking at what an electronic cigarette is, how they’re used and a brief insight into data and risks.
- Recommendations for practice: This tells healthcare professionals how to respond to enquiries made by the public and how to advise them on electronic cigarette use.
