Event Details

From 1 October 2021, all supply of nicotine vaping products will require a prescription from an Australian medical practitioner (whether the supply is domestic or by way of importation).

This TGA webinar meets the demand from healthcare practitioners for support to be ‘1 October 2021 ready’ to aid consumers wanting to quit, including those who are present users of nicotine vaping products.

We are very pleased to be joined by three New Zealanders with practical experience in the NZ smoking cessation experience, particularly in the role nicotine vaping products can play in a person’s journey to quit.

Adj Prof Skerritt will chair this session, with presentations from each of our eminent NZ practitioners followed by an opportunity for questions:

SPEAKERS:
– Dr N Walker | Nicotine vaping products, the NZ smoking cessation experience: Clinical trials using NVPs and the typical quitting journey of a smoker.

– Dr G Laking | Nicotine vaping products, the NZ smoking cessation experience: Implications for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and hard to reach groups.

– Dr H McRobbie | Nicotine vaping products, the NZ smoking cessation experience: Practical tips for prescribers to support a person to quit.

CHAIR:
– Adj/Professor John Skerritt, Department of Health (TGA)
