Veer off vaping – advocating for e-cigarette regulation in WA webinar
January 31 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFREE
E-cigarettes have been readily available globally since 2006. Nicotine is an extremely toxic substance, with liquid nicotine used in e-cigarettes posing a serious risk for young children in our society. If the popularity and access to e-cigarettes were to increase in Western Australia without legislative intervention and regulation, injuries from e-cigarettes would undoubtedly increase in both occurrence and severity. To talk through the use of e-cigarettes, its link to injury, and the advocacy strategies that are currently underway in WA, we will hear from the Make Smoking History team at Cancer Council WA in this one-hour online webinar hosted by Injury Matters.
This session aims to:
- Increase knowledge of the link between vaping and injury
- Increase awareness of current regulations on e-cigarettes in WA
- Increase confidence in advocating for harm reduction with e-cigarette use in young people
Who should attend?
This webinar is aimed at public health advocates, health promotion professionals, representatives from schools, Not-for-profit or Local Government bodies, metro health services and health professionals working in youth services, organisations or programs.
