Event description
This workshop is to discuss the unique challenges associated with youth tobacco addiction and cessation.

About this Event

The use of e-cigarettes in adolescents and youth has reached near epidemic levels. While there are many available products to aid in smoking cessation in adults, there is extremely limited data on either behavioral or drug therapies for smoking cessation in adolescents and youth, and even a more pronounced gap related to drug or behavioral interventions for the cessation of youth or adult e-cigarette use. This meeting will discuss (1) the basic science of tobacco addiction in adolescents, (2) current state of behavioral and pharmacotherapy cessation strategies in adolescents (e.g., clinical trial experience to date, use of technology and social media, impact of social factors), and (3) the development of strategies to generate robust evidence to address youth tobacco cessation (e.g., clinical trial design, measures of adolescent addiction, selection of endpoints, sub-population and co-morbidity considerations, and patient recruitment and retention).
