West Virginia University School of Dentistry, in cooperation with the Health Sciences Center Office of Interprofessional Education, is one of twenty-three Tobacco Treatment Training Programs certified nationally and internationally by the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP).
During the three day course, offered May 19-21 via Zoom, professionals in the fields of medicine, dentistry, social work, pharmacy, nursing and public health will present evidence-based strategies to assist patients and clients interested in tobacco cessation.
Lectures, role-playing and case presentations will be utilized to discuss pharmacological and counseling interventions with patients interested in tobacco cessation. The case presentations will involve patients with relatively healthy medical conditions to patients having multiple medical problems. Alternative nicotine delivery methods such as the electronic cigarette, smokeless tobacco and more recent products will be discussed.
