Format: 60-minutes (online)
The Program Training and Consultation Centre and the Ontario Tobacco Research Unit have partnered to deliver the following webinar: Smoking on Patios: Levels of Exposure, Health Effects and Impact on Behaviour Change.
Smoke-free policies not only reduce harm to non-smokers, but may also reduce harm to smokers by decreasing the number of cigarettes they smoke and increasing their ability to make or succeed in a quit attempt. This webinar addresses issues related to smoking exposure on restaurant or bar patios, including new findings on the impact of exposure to smoking on smoking behavior. Using data from the Ontario Tobacco Survey, a longitudinal population representative cohort of smokers (2005-2011), Dr. Chaiton will examine the association between exposure to patio smoking and changes in smoking behavior. Dr. Ferrence will present the evidence for secondhand smoke exposure on patios and related health effects.
