How do we advise patients about e-cigarettes?

  • : Online

This lecture for physiotherapists who want to increase their knowledge about e-cigarettes, their health impacts and their potential risks and benefits as a smoking cessation tool. This lecture aims to provide insights into both sides of the public health debate, the regulatory framework for e-cigarettes in Australia, and clinical guidelines for smoking cessation and e-cigarettes for physiotherapists working in Australia.


Dr Nia Luxton graduated from University of Ulster in 1993, and after travelling the world working in many different areas of physiotherapy, she specialised in physiotherapy in acute and chronic cardiorespiratory diseases in the Royal Brompton Hospital, London. She emigrated to Perth in 1998, and has led physiotherapy teams in acute cardiorespiratory care in public and private hospitals in both Perth and Sydney. Nia became an academic in 2003, whilst continuing to work clinically at weekends, and has taught at USYD and UNDA. Nia has recently completed a full time PhD at Macquarie University in the area of smoking cessation advice and e-cigarettes in the perioperative period of cardiothoracic surgery. Nia is a part time clinician, lecturer at ACU (North Sydney campus) and a postdoctoral fellow at Westmead Applied Research Centre.
