Work Through Barriers Webinar

Tuesday, February 2, 2010  
Join SAMHSA and the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center on February 10, 2010 (1pm ET, 90 min.) for our next webinar, "Addressing barriers to delivering tobacco dependence interventions across mental health care settings.”

Daryl Sharp, PhD, APRN, BC, and Susan Blaakman, MS, APRN, BC, faculty members at the University of Rochester, School of Nursing, will discuss strategies for working through barriers clinicians often face when addressing tobacco dependence among persons with mental illnesses. This webinar will move beyond making the case for the importance and need for tobacco dependence interventions in this population. Participants will be encouraged to share ideas and strategize about how to work through tobacco dependence treatment challenges at the staff and systems level. Please tune in to this interactive educational session.

Dr. Sharp and Ms. Blaakman are also co-chairs of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association’s Tobacco Dependence Council, a partner of the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center. The Council has established a position statement to mobilize psychiatric nurses as champions for smoking cessation with a clear message of "action equals hope” but "failure to act equals harm.”

Register now for this free webinar.

Feel free to forward this announcement to your colleagues. For questions, contact Reason Reyes, SCLC technical assistance manager, or call toll free at (877) 509-3786.
