Transform Your Tobacco Cessation Practice with Telehealth
May 14 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. ET

Growing research from the CDC shows that tobacco users and individuals with pre-existing respiratory conditions (such as lung cancer or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) are at a higher risk for severe complications from COVID-19.

As the use of telehealth expands across the country in response to COVID-19, delivering tobacco cessation services remotely while keeping apprised of recent federal guidelines is critical to ensure your most at-risk clients feel engaged and supported.
Join the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control, UCSF’s Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC) and SAMHSA National Center of Excellence for Tobacco-Free Recovery (CTFR), and the American Lung Association on May 14 from 12 – 1:30 p.m. ET for Transforming Your Tobacco Cessation Practice with Telehealth. Led by a diverse panel of tobacco cessation and telehealth care management experts, this webinar will explore ways to integrate best practices for telehealth services into your tobacco cessation efforts.

You will learn to:

  •  Identify important considerations in implementing and sustaining a telehealth program based on best practices for billing.
  •  Implement impactful telehealth innovations, platforms and models, based on case studies and lessons from the field.
  •  Identify and implement evidence-based strategies to engage behavioral health populations with high rates of tobacco use.

During this webinar, we are also pleased to release a complimentary resource guide to support behavioral health providers in the use of telehealth for providing tobacco cessation services.
