CAN MASS MEDIA CAMPAIGNS PREVENT ILLICIT DRUG USE?

Dovetail's own Cameron Francis will be presenting a webinar on the topic of "Mass media for preventing illicit drug use" on Wednesday May the 4th at 10am.  A 2015 Cochrane Review found "Contrary to common belief, anti-drug media campaigns may be damaging and their dissemination is ethically unacceptable without a prior assessment of their effects. New campaigns should be implemented in the framework of rigorous evaluation studies." This presentation will provide an overview of the history of mass media campaigns around substance use, and will consider a broad range of unintended consequences. If you can't attend the webinar live, a recording will be available afterwards.
