NNA Webinar on novel nicotine products.
We are delighted to invite you to join us for an online webinar discussion with Louise Ross, Mark Oates and Jeff DeSouza from 6pm – 7pm (BST) on Thursday 25th June. We will be discussing the subject ‘Novel nicotine products: It’s not all about vaping’.
The public is generally acutely aware of e-cigarettes and the principle of tobacco harm reduction is increasingly being recognised. Many, however, will not realise that there are many more safer nicotine products than just vaping. Snus is currently banned in the EU apart from Sweden which carved out an exemption and now boasts by far the lowest smoking rates in Europe. New tobacco free snus products have recently been introduced to the market in the UK and elsewhere. Heat not burn tobacco products which are far safer than cigarettes - and reduced smoking prevalence in Japan by a third in less than three years – are also a relatively new harm reduction option. What could be the role of these products for smokers looking to reduce their risk from nicotine consumption?
We will be asking consumers of these products to share their experiences and also look at how they might fit into the government’s Tobacco Control Plan for England which pledges to maximise the availability of innovative nicotine products to tempt smokers away from combustible tobacco.
