Medscape on Tobacco Harm Reduction: Part 1 – Nicotine


Most health professionals are familiar with Medscape, a free resource that describes itself as “the leading online global destination for physicians and healthcare professionals worldwide, offering the latest medical news and expert perspectives; essential point-of-care drug and disease information; and relevant professional education and [continuing medical education, CME].”

Recently, Medscape invited me to assist in developing a series of short CME programs on tobacco harm reduction, which evolved into an examination of nicotine and the differential risks of combusted versus smoke-free tobacco/nicotine products, among others.

The first program “Nicotine Misperceptions: What Does the Evidence Say,” professionally produced and based entirely on facts in the scientific literature, is now available online to everyone (here).  I encourage all health professionals and concerned members of the public to spend 30 minutes getting fresh insight into one of the most widely used drugs on the planet.
