Get up to 8.25 FREE credits by taking an all-new, innovative online training to learn best practices that help your patients coping with mental illness or other addictions to quit smoking!
• It’s grounded. The evidence-based training, called The Bucket Approach, offers videos and an interactive tool to help you chart your plan to seamlessly integrate tobacco treatment into your care.
• It’s tailored both to the smokers coping with a mental illness who may need more time and resources getting through the quit process and the busy clinician who has limited time to address tobacco.
• It’s needed. Behavioral health patients smoke more than 40% of the cigarettes in America and represent nearly half of tobacco deaths.
• It’s possible. They want to quit, can quit, and have quit smoking.
• It’s beneficial. Quitting smoking delivers great benefits to clients (improved physical and mental health/less need for prescriptions) as well as for treatment programs and staff—without hurting census.
Learn how to:
Organize the treatment of tobacco dependence as a population intervention within your clinic.
• Develop effective teams to implement this population intervention.
