Effective January 1st, 2018 all hospitals and psychiatric facilities in Ontario are required to be entirely smoke-free. Many organizations have already begun the transition to incorporate this legislation into their hospital policies. In this webinar we will discuss how this legislation will impact on patient care, and we will provide nurses and other health-care providers who work in acute care settings with the tools to support their patients who use tobacco.
