    Treating Tobacco Use Online Learning Module for Health Care Providers 

    The New York City Health Department has developed an interactive, online learning module entitled, Treating Tobacco Use to enhance provider knowledge on how to effectively assess, counsel and treat tobacco use. As the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., we as health care professionals are in a prime position to help our patients successfully quit tobacco, while simultaneously lowering their risk of heart disease, stroke, COPD and other diseases. 

    A detailed description of the course is attached, but highlights of the module include:

    •   The “5 A’s” model of treating tobacco use
    •   Provider/Patient communication techniques
    •   Treatment options and guidance, including combination therapy
    •   New York State Medicaid Benefits
    •   Billing information for smoking cessation counseling

    By incorporating this module into your continued education, providers – including those in training – will have the tools and resources needed to counsel and prescribe for tobacco use thereby greatly improving patients’ chances of successfully quitting. For medical residents, this module meets five of six Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) core competencies and can be placed into your learning management system. For physicians, the module provides 1 CME credit

    Click here to access the online module (note, there is no audio) and here to access additional provider resources.

    Once patients receive treatment, they can also visit nyc.gov and search NYC QUITS to access tools and information on how to quit and stay quit.

    We hope you find this learning module useful.  If you have questions or would like to learn more about how to incorporate the learning module into your learning management system, please contact us at 347-396-4552.
