The Northern Trust stop smoking service is offering free Smoking Cessation Brief Intervention training to all staff/volunteers working with the public. This session has been developed to equip staff with enough background knowledge to be able to provide approximately 2-3 minutes of brief advice to any smoker on the risks of smoking, benefits of giving up, ways of quitting and how to refer on to specialist services.
- Background statistics on smoking
- Health risks of smoking
- Benefits of quitting
- Smoking Cessation – means and aids including e-cigarettes
- How to refer to stop smoking services
- New policies and legislation
Brief intervention training usually takes an hour but can be done in less time (20-30 minutes) to tag onto the end of a team meeting or other staff training. A certificate of completion is provided.
