OPA | ODH Smoking Cessation Training Program

Smoking Cessation

OPA has partnered with the Ohio Department of Health to offer continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activities to help community pharmacists implement a smoking cessation program in their pharmacies. This three-part series is designed to give pharmacists the expertise to help patients successfully quit smoking or using tobacco.

  • The Why and How of Smoking Cessation: Essential Pearls will cover the benefits that a patient can experience through smoking cessation, useful counseling methods pharmacists can employ to determine a patient’s readiness for smoking cessation, and how to prepare a quit plan for a patient who wishes to quit.
