Webinar on August 9: Helping Patients Quit: New Research on Clinical Tobacco Interventions!

Thursday, August 9, 2012  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Partnership for Prevention and the Multi-State Collaborative for Health System Changewill co-sponsor an educational webinar on Thursday August 9. The program will run from 12:30 to 1:45pm Eastern time. It is free of charge and open to all.

The program is entitled, "Helping Patients Quit: New Research on Clinical Tobacco Interventions”. It will feature Dr. Shanta Dube (CDC/OSH) and Dr. Thomas Land (Massachusetts Dept of Public Health) discussing the latest findings in two separate research studies.

Description:Two presenters will report on recently published information about clinical tobacco use interventions and a facilitator will lead a discussion with participants. Particular attention will be paid to several important questions:
  • Are healthcare providers intervening with their patients who use tobacco?
  • Can a system of clinical tobacco use interventions reduce smoking rates and contain cost?
  • Will large real-world data sets obtained from Electronic Heath Records (EMR) contribute new perspectives on reach, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of tobacco interventions?
