Parents: The Untapped Resource for Balancing Cessation and Prevention Needs:
Time: 15:20 - 15:35
Date: Wednesday 8th December 2021
This presentation will discuss the potential for parents to be the untapped link between smoking cessation and prevention of youth use of e-cigarettes and other tobacco products. Although there is substantial evidence for the association of parental smoking and youth smoking, less is known about ripple effects of parental smoking cessation on youth tobacco and e-cigarette use. This presentation will discuss how a refocus on parental smoking cessation may help to achieve the dual aims of reducing smoking and preventing underage e-cigarette use.
