Course Description

This seminar aims to support senior health care facility personnel to implement tobacco-free health care facilities. A tobacco-free health care facility should consist of tobacco-free buildings, and preferably grounds. If smoking is allowed outside, it should be in a designated area and, if possible, for patients and visitors only. It should also provide routine smoking cessation support to patients who smoke and family members who expose patients to tobacco smoke in the home. Cessation support should also be accessible to staff.

The seminar is based on The Union's publication 'Tobacco-free Healthcare – a tobacco-free futures action guide'.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Learn to formulate a comprehensive plan for a tobacco-free health care facility.
