Smoking cessation should be an integral part of every service for patients who use tobacco. Health care providers need an appropriate level of knowledge of smoking cessation practices and therapies that include pharmacological treatment (i.e. nicotine replacement therapy, bupropion or varenicline) combined with behavioral support methods. This course will provide the importance of lung health and the latest lung cancer screening recommendations, as well as provide evidence-based cessation methods and tools that can be utilized with current tobacco users.
