Learning Objectives: Learner Outcomes At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to 1) locate meta-analyses, guidelines, databases, consensus statements, etc on tobacco prevention, treatment, policy and surveillance. 2) list the major methodological assets and weaknesses of the different meta-analyses, guidelines, databases, consensus statements

Abstract: Abstract

This panel will present a list of written and electronic resources (both via a handout and a slide presentation) of the most respected meta-analyses, guidelines, consensus statements, databases, etc on tobacco prevention (Dr Flynn), treatment (Dr Hughes), policy (Dr Pechacek) and surveillance(Dr Giovino). Administrators, advocates, and other non-researchers can use these resources to determine the adequacy of the scientific base for different tobacco control activities. The resources can be used not only to determine which activities to include in a tobacco control program but also to convince others that tobacco control activities do work. The panel will also present the strengths and weaknesses of the resources and the more important points in interpreting their results.
