The 29th Annual Nicotine Dependence Center Conference explores challenges, opportunities and practices to improve access for patients who can benefit from treatment for tobacco use disorder and increase utilization among those who are currently underserved.
This conference is designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals experienced in working with tobacco dependent patients, and who are interested in incorporating more effective treatment into their practice along with developing more comprehensive services to meet the needs of highly tobacco dependent patients. Physicians, tobacco treatment specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists, pharmacists, psychologists, chemical dependency counselors, respiratory therapists, nurses, dental hygienists, wellness coaches, social workers and other allied health professionals may find the conference beneficial in working with this challenging population of patients.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe steps important in adapting the electronic health record to deliver automated opt-out referrals for tobacco use.
- Identify key points of contact in the healthcare process to improve outreach to patients and describe modalities and methods that can improve the likelihood of completed referrals.
- Define resources to improve messaging and service delivery to underserved populations.
- Discuss clinical strategies and best practices for care of tobacco use disorder in underserved populations.
