This module will assess your approach to smoking cessation, and on successful completion of all 10 questions, you'll be awarded with a one hour CPD Certificate.
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.
