Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program (30 CE hours, virtual)

12:00 AM - 5:00 PM


The Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program is a comprehensive and specialized training program designed to equip healthcare professionals, including those in oncology settings, with the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively address tobacco use in their patients and populations. Recognizing the significant impact of tobacco use on cancer patients' health outcomes, the program aims to train healthcare providers to become certified tobacco treatment specialists. These specialists possess the expertise to provide evidence-based interventions, support, and resources to patients who use tobacco products, helping them quit or reduce tobacco use and improve their overall health. The Duke-UNC Comprehensive TTS Program combines findings from the most current evidence-based research on pharmacotherapy, population-based issues, practical guidance on running a practice, and targeted skills in tobacco dependence counseling. Through a combination of interactive, virtual sessions and online self-paced training, Duke-UNC TTS offers leading-edge, evidence-based continuing education in a fun and engaging online experience.
