Cochrane review updates
Time: 10:00 - 10:15
Date: Friday 9th December, 2022
The Cochrane review of e-cigarettes for quitting smoking was updated this year, and new studies have important implications for certainty of key outcomes. A companion piece, also recently out, investigates biomarkers of potential harm in people who smoke who are given e-cigarettes, but do not successfully quit (dual users). This session will cover key findings from both pieces of work, and also consider the mixed standards used when describing the ‘certainty’ of evidence about the benefits and harms of e-cigarettes.
