The scientific underpinning of UK policy on tobacco harms reduction
10:00 - 10:15
Evidence, Policy and Research
Since the publication of “Smoking Kills” 20 years ago, responding to and building upon the evidence base has been a key characteristic of UK tobacco policy. This approach has also characterised the UK approach to tobacco harm reduction. This presentation sets out UK policy on E-cigarettes in the context of the evolving evidence base, the key questions that need to be considered by policy makers and an ethical approach to dealing with residual uncertainty.
