The University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences has launched the “Comprehensive Smoking Cessation Education for the Colorado Pharmacist” training program, in partnership with the Oregon State University.
This training program allows Colorado pharmacists to meet the requirements necessary to provide smoking cessation care to eligible adults in our state. This training program will provide the educational resources to safely prescribe smoking cessation therapies. It includes background information (prevalence, burden of tobacco use, addiction and intervention strategies), comprehensive review of medication therapies (pharmacology, clinical approaches to treatment options, and crucial counseling points), practical and business considerations, and finally, Colorado-specific Protocol information to apply to your practice.
