Telehealth & Tobacco Cessation Coffee Chat
Original Air Date: July 23, 1-2 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 as we further explore this topic on a coffee chat featuring subject matter experts Kimber P. Richter, Ph.D., MPH, NCTTP, Director of UKanQuit at the University of Kansas Hospital and Professor, Department of Population Health at University of Kansas School of Medicine; and Theresa Hankin RRT, NCTTP, Smoking Cessation Education Coordinator at Upstate Medical University. This event is a follow-up to our Transform Your Tobacco Cessation Practice with Telehealth webinar.
