e-Learning for Stop Smoking - by NHS Yorks & Humber

NHS Yorkshire and the Humber has produced a free e-learning package on stop smoking, suitable for anyone who comes into contact with smokers.

This training is designed for ANYONE who comes into contact with smokers but who do not have enough time to attend face to face training - including non-healthcare professionals

Tobacco cessation is the single most life saving and cost effective intervention provided by the NHS.

Helping someone to take that step toward stopping their tobacco use not only benefits their health, but improves their families and their communities’ health in the short, medium and long term.

The e-learning offers training at two levels:

  • The Very Brief Advice module is suitable for those who have opportunistic contact (up to 30 seconds) with tobacco users.
  • Brief Advice content is suitable for those who have dedicated time to raise this issue (between 5 and 10 minutes) with tobacco users.
