2019 Western Canadian Tobacco Reduction Forum: Getting There Together

While a general declining trend in commercial tobacco use rates has been observed, it is clear that some individuals and groups are disproportionately affected by commercial tobacco use and its harm. What has previously worked in tobacco control may need to be reassessed and reformed with true engagement of disproportionately affected individuals and groups.

The Western Canadian Tobacco Reduction Forum will provide an opportunity for knowledge sharing and translation, networking, and planning to facilitate Getting There Together! Attendees will explore effective approaches to achieving Canada’s ambitious new target of reducing the overall smoking rate to 5% by 2035. Presenters will include national tobacco control leaders and experts on various elements of tobacco reduction including tobacco cessation, prevention, and policy.

The forum is hosted by the Campaign for a Smoke-Free Alberta, of which the Alberta Policy Coalition for Chronic Disease Prevention is a member.

Call for Abstracts
The organizing committee is seeking individuals and organizations who are interested in sharing their current projects and research related to individuals, groups, and settings that experience inequities in commercial tobacco use, exposure and harms. This includes successes, challenges, and opportunities in prevention, policy, and cessation with these individuals, groups, and settings. Presenters are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation.

The call for abstracts is open until Thursday, January 31st, 2019.
