Smoking Cessation | Module Overview

Smoking is a major risk factor associated with cancer and increased cardiovascular disease. Although the prevalence of smoking is declining within the Western world, the diseases associated with it continue to be a major health issue to the country. Consequently, asking patients about their smoking status and offering advice on stopping smoking is a significant component of the General Medical Services (GMS) contract.

Much emphasis is placed upon helping patients stop smoking with the establishment of smoking cessation services in the community, practice and pharmacy. Decades ago individuals who sought help with smoking cessation relied on willpower alone. However, recent therapeutic developments have equipped healthcare professionals with drug therapies to complement traditional strategies and enable more people to stop smoking.

This module, composed of 10 assessment questions, is based around typical clinical scenarios familiar to you in your practice, and will test your knowledge of the issues of smoking cessation. Once you successfully complete the module — and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% — you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
