Program Description

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.

Intended Audience

Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and registered nurses

  • Identify the key role of NPs and PAs in facilitating smoking cessation through behavior change strategies
  • Describe specific skills to effectively motivate and engage, or re-engage, persistent smokers in a collaborative smoking cessation treatment plan
  • Assess patients’ readiness to quit and stage of change utilizing evidence-based tools
  • Select the appropriate pharmacotherapeutic and nicotine replacement options for smoking cessation
  • Develop an individualized behaviorally based smoking cessation treatment plan and appropriate pharmacotherapeutic and nicotine replacement options for patients who desire to quit smoking
