Tobacco Treatment: Supporting Your Patients Who Smoke
Join us for a webinar put on by the NYC Health Department in partnership with CAMS on how healthcare providers can support all their patients who smoke by promoting treatment—regardless of their readiness to quit. The following topics will be covered in the webinar: smoking prevalence and health risks, patient counseling strategies, treatment options (including nicotine replacement therapy or NRT), as well as available tools to support treatment, billing, and patient education.
