Tobacco Cessation Certificate Training

One of the most positive, cost-effective influences any healthcare professional can have is to help a patient quit smoking. This certification program is designed to prepare pharmacists and student pharmacist to identify patients who do smoke and to present a range of possible options, from quick counseling to long-term individual and group counseling programs, all designed to help smokers quit. By completing this course, pharmacists can earn 6 hours (0.6 CEUs) of continuing education credit.

The primary goal of this certification program is to enable you to implement a smoking cessation counseling program in your practice setting. By completing this course, you will become certified by the WSPA as an educational resource for patients who want to quit smoking.
