Recommendations on Behavioural Interventions for Prevention and Treatment of Cigarette Smoking in School-aged Children and Youth

Among Canadian youth, 18% have tried cigarettes, with the range increasing from 3% among children in grade 6 to 36% among youth in grade 12. A person who starts smoking as a child or youth is less likely to quit later in life than someone who starts later. Factors such as age, sex, the influence of friends and family, and the broader social environment of school and community are linked to a youth’s decision to start smoking. Almost 90% of adult smokers first smoked tobacco by age 18.

Recommendations on screening for abdominal aortic aneurysm

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) results from a weakening in a section of the aortic wall in the abdomen, which bulges because of pressure from blood flow to form an aneurysm. The aneurysm may grow and eventually rupture, causing death from hemorrhage. It is estimated that each year, 20 000 Canadians receive a diagnosis of AAA, and that between 2009 and 2013, about 1244 people died each year from an AAA. Because AAA is usually asymptomatic before rupture, screening could provide an opportunity to identify, monitor and treat to prevent a rupture.
