Course Code
Course Types
Training Event

This course is restricted for Pharmacy and GP staff only.

All smokers in the country deserve high quality evidence-based behavioural support. For this to be achieved, Stop Smoking Practitioners need to be trained to a minimum standard and be able to demonstrate competence to fulfill their role.

Therefore training courses should cover relevant topics, as indicated by a set of learning outcomes. The attached document lists a set of training standards that have been agreed as essential for individual and group face-to-face smoking cessation interventions. In some cases, they are based on the need for Stop Smoking Practitioners to be able to accurately answer queries from clients on matters relating to smoking and smoking cessation. In other cases they are required for safe professional practice and in some cases they are based on a systematic analysis of behaviour change techniques that have a reasonable evidence base to support their use.
