About this event:

The webinar will introduce an eight-week pilot program developed to create a safe and blameless environment where clients are supported to ask questions and seek help to become nicotine free without feeling stigmatized.

The primary goal of the program is to reduce nicotine harms, help people develop strong relationships and social connections, and provide more equitable access to cessation services that will increase confidence in quit or reduce-to-quit attempts that can protect them from nicotine related harms. 

Participants will learn how to implement client centred care, promote health literacy and support self management strategies when working with hard to reach populations who access community outreach programs.

Debbie McIntyre, RN, BNSc, CIC, certified tobacco educator, Department of Clinical Services, Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit

Lucia Taggart, RN, BNSc, MPH, nursing practice coordinator & BPSO Lead, Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit
