This free continuing education program is a collaboration of the Indiana Dental Hygienists’ Association, Indiana University School of Dentistry, Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis, the Cessation and Biobehavioral Group, Indiana University School of Medicine and the Indiana University School of Nursing Office of Lifelong Learning and is made possible by a grant from the Tobacco Cessation and Prevention Commission (Indiana State Department of Health).

 

Course Description

Tobacco dependence is a chronic condition which according to the American Cancer Society, “... is already the single greatest cause of preventable death in the world.” An estimated 44.5 million adults smoke cigarettes, and more than 8.6 million of them have at least 1 serious illness caused by smoking.  Indiana’s adult smoking rate ranks 5th highest in the United States and attributes 9,700 deaths due to tobacco-related diseases each year.

Patients and healthcare providers have remained discouraged from trying older cessation methods. However, new treatments and approaches to aid in      smoking cessation can offer renewed promise and motivation.

Intended for health professionals including primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physicians’ assistants, dentists, dental hygienists, and office staff, this program will provide practical approaches for helping patients quit using tobacco.

The entire office staff is encouraged to participate. Implementation of a practical, targeted and comprehensive quit plan will help your patients finally quit.

You will have opportunities to collaborate with local tobacco cessation partners from the Indiana State Department of Health. 

 

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

• Describe and recognize the oral and systemic effects of tobacco use;

• Evaluate available efficacy and safety data on new and emerging tobacco cessation therapies; 

• Apply an individualized tobacco cessation quit-plan that maximizes the likelihood of treatment success;

• Define planning, maintenance, therapy, resources and referral sources, and follow up to prevent relapse and promote long-term success.
