Very brief advice on smoking

Evidence shows very brief advice on smoking can help to trigger a quit attempt among people who smoke. This eLearning is aimed at health professionals and other allied health professionals working in a wide range of settings who have interactions with people who smoke. It includes GPs, nurses, health visitors, midwives, dentists, and pharmacists not providing specialist smoking support within their service.

It may also be of interest to anyone, who is likely to come into contact with people who smoke in their day to day work and is interested in their health and wellbeing e.g. leisure staff, community workers and voluntary sector staff, money advice or welfare rights officers, housing officer, prison staff, police and fire services.

It is anticipated that the module will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
