Description

As part of the NC Medicaid Transformation, all physical and behavioral health facilities that contract with Medicaid must be tobacco-free by December 1, 2022 - is your facility ready? Are you interested in supporting your behavioral health organization in going tobacco-free and expanding tobacco use treatment supports? Need assistance in taking the next steps around policy and implementation? Learn from experts how to successfully transition your facility and enhance your tobacco cessation treatment services.

Session 1: Tobacco-Free Policies and Integrating Tobacco Use Treatment
Learn step-by-step how to implement a tobacco-free campus policy and integrate tobacco use treatment at diverse programs, including inpatient, community-based, residential, and long-term services and supports. Participants will also learn about community resources, including QuitlineNC, that can help patients or clients quit. Participants will come away with comprehensive framework to address all forms of tobacco use at a systems level, including e-cigarette use, with their policy and treatment integration process.

Session 2: Standard-of-Care Tobacco Use Treatment: Behavioral Interventions and Medications
This training will prepare clinicians to integrate the most up-to-date standard-of-care for tobacco use treatment which can double or triple their patients/clients chances of success. This training will discuss evidence-based medication and counseling strategies, as well as considerations for treating electronic cigarette use and treating any tobacco use during pregnancy and lactation.

Session 3: Protecting Youth from Secondhand Smoke, E-cigarettes, and Helping Them Quit
This session will review evidence-based and evidence-informed strategies for preventing and treating adolescent tobacco use. Participants will learn strategies for screening for secondhand smoke, engaging youth successfully in a quit attempt based on American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations, and about referral resources.
