This activity is jointly provided by the Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation and Integrated Learning Partners, LLC., in collaboration with Consultants in Medical Education.
Supported by GlaxoSmithKline
This program is designed to increase the skills, motivation, and confidence of NPs and PAs to address smoking cessation with their challenging, non-adherent patients as well as patients who continue to smoke despite the efforts of their healthcare providers or in spite of the patient’s repeated expressed commitments to quit. Best practices for clinical treatments for smoking cessation among challenging persistent smokers will be presented, along with concrete behavioral counselling tips, references, and evidence-based resource materials. The goal of this program is to motivate and re-energize healthcare providers to treat and counsel smoking cessation more effectively and efficiently, especially to those patients who persist in smoking.
