Smoking Cessation e-Learning

It is now recommended that mental health and general health care settings become totally smoke free, banning smoking from both buildings and grounds. Helping service users to stop smoking will also improve their health and well-being.

The Smoking Cessation e-Learning enables heath care staff to recognise the dangers of smoking and the benefits of stopping smoking. The e-learning illustrates the barriers and challenges of stopping smoking; the issues of nicotine addiction and withdrawal and the advice and interventions that can be provided to patients to support smoking cessation.

The package discussed the use of nicotine replacements therapy (NRT); the need to monitor patients attempting to stop smoking and the effects of smoking and smoking cessation on medication and therapeutic blood levels.
