The use of vaping products by youth and young adults has been escalating in the recent years and becoming very common. Similarly, there are increasing concerns from parents, educators and healthcare providers as there are many misconceptions and unknowns surrounding this topic.
For this reason, the BC Lung Association has partnered with Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health Authority to develop a Vaping Products Prevention Toolkit. The purpose of this toolkit is to raise awareness and increase the knowledge of educators, parents and healthcare providers on vaping products to help guide youth towards making an informed decision with respect to using vaping products.
