Description: 

Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States and is directly associated with one in four cardiovascular disease-related deaths. Yet, effective treatments for tobacco use and dependence are largely unutilized and less than 10% of persons who smoke quit successfully in a given year.

In this webinar, participants will gain an understanding of epidemiologic patterns of cessation behaviors, the importance of approaching treatment with a chronic disease model, and a variety of clinical and public health strategies to support cessation. Approaches to integrating treatment of tobacco use and dependence into routine care will additionally be discussed. Participants will be introduced to the new Million Hearts Tobacco Cessation Change Package, which provides practical strategies, tools, and resources for tobacco treatment integration.
