Young people aged under 18 experience different tobacco related harms to adults and current smoking cessation treatments and policy are focussed on adults and don’t respond to harms unique to young. This presentation will summarise a qualitative study conducted with clinicians from multiple disciplines and across several settings around the barriers to smoking cessation in young people.
