This tobacco cessation training program was created to transform the landscape of clinician education related to tobacco. It is a comprehensive program designed to equip health professional students and practicing clinicians with evidence-based strategies for assisting patients with tobacco cessation. The content draws heavily from the US Public Health Service clinical practice guideline for treating tobacco use and dependence. It advocates for the delivery of tailored, evidence-based interventions. Once you complete this program, you will be able to apply evidence-based approaches for helping your patients become tobacco free. Working together, we can reduce the overall prevalence of tobacco use and the heavy burden it places on the nation’s health, by helping our patients achieve healthier, tobacco free lifestyles.
