3rd WATI Workshop - Web Assisted Tobacco Interventions
Web-assisted tobacco interventions (WATI) are a class of technology-enabled behavioral interventions are becoming popular because of their ease of proliferation, scalability and relatively low-cost. Web-assisted behavior change tools in general have achieved success in facilitating behaviour change across a variety of health conditions, with tobacco control being among the most widely studied, and effective, areas for applying eHealth interventions.
The World Congress on Internet and Medicine (MedNet) in Toronto will provide an opportunity for those engaged in WATI to meet with eHealth specialists to exchange ideas and share knowledge, promoting collaboration opportunities globally between sectors and between practitioners, researchers, and funders.
The aim is to lay the foundations for developing a global community of practice within WATI and eHealth by drawing both tobacco control and eHealth researchers together working on areas of common interest.
