PRCHN February 2021 Seminar: Addressing barriers to tobacco treatment for people with comorbid conditions in the healthcare setting
Patients diagnosed with comorbid physical and mental health conditions who smoke need to quit smoking for the benefit of both their comorbid condition outcomes and their long-term health. Yet, systemic barriers prevent many patients who present for medical treatment from getting the evidence-based tobacco treatment that they need. This presentation will discuss barriers and potential solutions to increasing the availability of successful, evidence-based tobacco treatment programs in healthcare systems. Areas of potential future research will be discussed.

Feb 10, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
