The 2021 review of NICE’s tobacco guidelines

Time: 10:35 - 10:50

Date: Wednesday 8th December 2021

NICE – the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence – is an executive non-departmental public body of the Department of Health and Social Care. NICE’s role is to improve outcomes for people using the NHS and other public health and social care services and produces evidence-based recommendations developed by independent committees, including professionals and lay members, and consulted on by stakeholders. The NICE Tobacco Guidelines expert committee was chaired by Paul Lincoln, OBE and consolidated 13 previously separate pieces of NICE tobacco guidance and updated areas where there was new research evidence. E-cigarettes was one of the areas of these reviews and the new comprehensive Guidance should be launched on 30 November 2021. In this session Paul will outline the new NICE recommendations on e- cigarettes including updated advice for healthcare professionals on what to say to smokers about vaping and the evidence base and rationale that underpins them.
