Seminar Session: Smoking Cessation Counselling for Physicians

here​ to watch the video presentation 

Original Date: Feb 24, 2016

senters: Matthew Taylor and Alice Xu, medical students from the University of Toronto

As part of our undergraduate medical education Community, Population and Public Health (CPPH) long-term placement, we collaborated with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health Nicotine Dependence Clinic (NDC) to develop an educational resource for medical students. We developed this webinar-styled learning module for medical students at the University of Toronto to help increase the exposure and bridge the learning gap of tobacco cessation interventions for future physicians. The module discussed the “5 A method” to intervention, the behaviour change theory, motivational interviewing, and CAMH resources for tobacco cessation. The content was designed around the CanMEDS framework. We anticipate that after completion of the module, medical students will be more informed regarding tobacco use cessation counseling and tobacco use resources. Furthermore, we hope that the project will improve awareness about the TEACH program and lead to an increase in physician participation.
