NAQC is excited to announce the 2016 Webinar Series: Quitline Collaboration and Synergies to Reduce Tobacco Use
. The series will kick off on March 23 2016 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (ET)
The 2016 Webinar Series will explore collaborations and synergies with policies and programs for quitlines to consider. The 5 presentations will cover topics such as Smoke-free Public Housing, Medicaid, and cultural and language considerations for quitlines. The goal of the 2016 Webinar Series is to identify and discuss opportunities created by these policies and programs to promote and increase use of quitlines.
NAQC’s goal is to use the first half of each webinar to present opportunities for collaboration, and when possible examples and lessons learned from state quitlines. The second half of the webinar will be reserved for participant dialogue, moderate by NAQC staff. Registered webinar participants will receive a set of question for consideration prior to each webinar. These questions will guide participant dialogue during the second half of the webinar and NAQC asks that participants consider how their quitline or service provider organization would respond or approach the questions in advance of the webinar.
The fist presentation will be on March 23 2016 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (ET)
by Dr. Brian King the Deputy Director for Research Translation (Acting) in the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) at Center for Disease Control and (CDC).
Title: Revisiting the Role of Cessation in Decreasing Prevalence of Tobacco Use
The SIM SMOKE Model, published in a set of key articles in 2010, outlined steps necessary to increase population level quits using evidence based cessation treatment and cessation treatment policy levers. Dr. Brian King will discuss the findings of the papers, and the role quitlines should play to help achieve the Healthy People 2020 goal of <12% tobacco use.
By the end of the 1st
webinar participants will be able to:
- Understand the how the combination of evidence-based cessation treatments and cessation treatment policies impact population level quits.
- Describe efforts needed by tobacco control programs, public and private organizations, health care providers, and public and private health plans to accelerate the decline in tobacco use
- The current status of tobacco use and other key quit metrics.
