The TEACH Project has a primary goal of reducing the prevalence of tobacco use in Ontario by increasing identification and treatment capacity by health and allied practitioners from diverse disciplines and service settings.
TEACH Certificate Program Courses offered in February 2012:
1) A three-day Core Course (February 27 -29) - A Comprehensive Course on Smoking Cessation: Essential Skills and Strategies
This course is designed to enable health care professionals to gain access to evidence-based knowledge about tobacco use and to develop practical skills in cessation counselling.
2) A two-day specialty course (March 1-2) - Helping Pregnant Women Quit Smoking: A Woman-Centered Approach
This specialized course will allow participants to increase their knowledge about tobacco use, screening, assessment and interventions to apply with women who smoke across the lifespan.
A two-day specialty course (March 1-2) - Integrated Chronic Disease Prevention: Addressing the Risks
This specialized course highlights the ways that various risk factors and the four major categories of non-communicable chronic diseases (cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease and diabetes) interact with tobacco dependence, and offers ways to intervene effectively in an integrated way.
Participants who fulfill all course requirements will receive a Certificate of Completion in Continuing Education in Intensive Tobacco Cessation Interventions from the University of Toronto.
The application period will open December 5, 2011 at 10AM and will close January 6, 2012 at 4PM. Applications will be submitted electronically on our website http://www.teachproject.ca.
