Training Services is pleased to announce the kick-off of two new online training projects aimed at increasing tobacco treatment and ultimately help to increase the quit attempts among individuals served by the tobacco prevention, cessation and control programs in each of these States.
The Iowa Tobacco Prevention Control Program is focused on improving hospital-based providers’ referrals of patients to cessation treatment before they leave the hospital. We are designing a self-guided online training with tracks tailored to different professional categories (e.g., physicians, nursing staff and allied health professionals). This training is expected to launch in September, 2012.
The New Mexico Tobacco Use Prevention and Control Program has commissioned an online training for healthcare professionals to address the diverse population of New Mexico and unique cultural uses of tobacco use with this population (e.g., ceremonial use of tobacco among American Indians). The online training, which is expected to launch in January 2013, is designed for all types of providers across the State, particularly those serving disparate populations.
