Training Enhancement in Applied Cessation Counselling and Health (TEACH)

The TEACH Project's objective is to ensure that practitioners who serve people who use tobacco have the specialized knowledge and skills to deliver effective, evidence-based cessation intervention. Research shows that after specialized training, health care professionals are more likely to provide tobacco cessation counselling to clients and patients. As the community of trained practitioners grows so does system capacity, giving people who use tobacco access to counselling and intervention programs.
The TEACH Project is a Knowledge Translation initiative to build interprofessional capacity in evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment among Ontario practitioners across over 36 disciplines and diverse health/social service settings. Since the beginning of the project in 2006, 5,300+ participants from over 950 organizations have attended our 43.5  hour Certificate Program, which is accredited by the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, professional regulatory bodies and the international Association for the Treatment of Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD). TEACH has been recognized with awards of excellence from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine and the Office of Interprofessional Education.

Funding for the TEACH Certificate Program is provided by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care as part of the Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy. Although our course offerings have moved primarily online, TEACH can provide in-person trainings to specific communities or organizations by request. If you are interested in requesting an in-person training, please complete the following Training Request Form. If you have any questions, please contact us at teach@camh.ca.
