The National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training

unveiled it's latest program for health and social care professionals to support people who want to use vaping eLiquids as an aid to help them quit smoking.

The course aims to provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge, and clinical guidance, to ensure that their advice is evidence-based and effective.  While sadly this is not common practice everywhere, it's a great sign that the world is finally starting to catch a glimpse of what is really going on with vaping. 

This course draws upon both the 2018 Public Health England review of evidence and the 2016 Royal College of Physicians report, but what's really different is that they also on the experience of vapers!  The course covers the safety and effectiveness of vaping eLiquids, as well as types of device and issues for soon to be ex-smokers to consider.

Taken from the course overview page: It can be difficult with a technology that is both varied and rapidly advancing, such as e-cigarettes, to keep on top of all the latest developments. But we know enough to be able to construct this course upon the principles that e-cigarettes:

  • Are considerably safer than smoking cigarettes
  • Are popular with smokers
  • Have a role to play in reducing smoking rates

Hopefully this is just the first sign of adaption to the reality that is vaping and other countries will soon catch up and offer similar options for those looking to finally kick the habit of combustible smoking. Here's a link to their site if you want to check it out.
