What is Vaping.ClinicalEncounters.com?
Through the Clinical Encounters platform, Vaping.ClinicalEncounters.com provides a framework to support clinically-relevant learning centered around vaping assessment and treatment based on challenging scenarios, decision-making, structured feedback, and patient-focused complementary resources.
What is the need for this website?
Vaping and e-cigarette use, especially among today’s youth, threaten to bring back the scourge of addiction to nicotine and introduce a novel indiscreet means to use cannabis. From 2017 to 2018, rates of e-cigarette use by high school students almost doubled to 1 in 5, and in middle school students, the rate increased to 1 in 20. Over 1 in 5 high school seniors reported past-year use of a vaping device in 2018 and almost 1 in 7 vape cannabis. Over 1/3 of young adults have used e-cigarettes, placing them at risk for a lifetime of addiction to nicotine. Yet health care providers lack the skills, training, and resources to reverse these trends.
What is the mission of this website?
Through our training, the health professional will build key clinical skills related to vaping including the deployment of motivational interviewing and Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) skills. A patient-centered approach builds a strong collaborative relationship by emphasizing dialogue, patient relevance, tailoring an intervention to the patient’s needs, and the proper use of integrated resources and guides for parents, adolescents and young adults.
What is the target audience?
- Clinicians who need more information and training on vaping
- Primary Care Physicians
- Resident Physicians who work in primary care
Will my information be shared?
