NSW Health update on e-cigarettes and young people

On-demand recorded 27 Sep 2023

The Australian Government announced a package of reforms to regulate e-cigarettes in May 2023. NSW Health is rapidly progressing work in response to these announcements to address the needs of young people and others who use e-cigarettes, as well as health professionals, parents and carers, and schools.

This webinar will provide an overview of key work, including an outline of recently developed clinical guidelines to support young people to quit vaping, an update on the next phase of the NSW Health anti-vaping campaign and updates to the ‘Do you know what you’re vaping’? toolkit materials. It will also provide an opportunity for GPs to ask questions to the panel and raise issues related to e-cigarettes.

Learning outcomes

  1. Discuss the current context of e-cigarettes in NSW and Australia
  2. Discuss the priority work NSW Health is undertaking in response to the recent Australian Government announcements on e-cigarette reforms
  3. Summerise the resources available to support GPs in delivering care to people who use e-cigarettes.
