Tobacco use remains the chief preventable cause of death in the United States. Health care clinicians working in various settings routinely have opportunities to treat people for tobacco dependence. The Tobacco Dependence Treatment Specialist training is relevant to any health professional who provides clinical care to people who use tobacco. This includes nurses and nurse practitioners, doctors, dentists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, mental health professionals, addiction professionals and social workers. The training will prepare health professionals to provide their patients/clients with effective evidenced-based interventions for tobacco dependence.
