How to Think - Not Feel - About Tobacco Harm Reduction

Avedis Donabedian Distinguished University Professor of Public Health Emeritus, Professor of Health Management and Policy Emeritus, Dean Emeritus, University of Michigan School of Public Health

Webinar Objectives

  1. Explain the principal arguments, and the data relating to them, regarding the nature and degree of risks that alternative nicotine delivery systems (specifically focusing on e-cigarettes) pose for youth, especially for non-smoking youth.

  2. Identify and evaluate the evidence regarding whether e-cigarettes function as harm reduction for adult smokers, specifically examining whether e-cigarettes increase or decrease (or do not affect) the overall rate of smoking cessation.

  3. Describe the conclusions that derive from a simulation study that analyzes the net consequences of the potential costs of e-cigarettes (encouraging otherwise never-smoking kids to smoke) and the benefits (increasing smoking cessation among adults).
