Event Summary

This webinar is the official launch of the best practice guideline Integrating Tobacco Interventions into Daily Practice (Third Edition).
The new edition replaces the RNAO Best Practice Guideline Integrating Smoking Cessation into Daily Nursing Practice (2007).

The purpose of this guideline is to provide tobacco intervention best practices for nurses and other health-care providers across all care settings, through evidence-based recommendations related to assessment and interventions for individuals who use tobacco. The guideline covers multiple forms of commercial tobacco and is no longer limited to cigarette use alone— the title has changed from “smoking cessation” to “tobacco interventions”.

The recommendations will help nurses and other health-care providers gain the knowledge to, for example, screen all clients for tobacco use, implement an intervention plan, refer clients, add tobacco use content to enhance health professional education programs, ensure tobacco intervention curriculum is facilitated by trained and skilled educators, and advocate for smoke- and vape-free policies in health-care delivery settings and in the community. This guideline applies to all domains of nursing practice, including clinical, administrative, and educational, and is relevant to a wider range of health-care providers.

During this webinar you will learn about:
•  The new and revised recommendations featured in the guideline
•  The evidence that supports the recommendations
•  The new tools and resources featured in the guideline
•  The steps the expert panel took to make decisions on emerging topics related to tobacco interventions
