Course Overview

The cases represented in this module introduce you to the complexities involved in helping some smokers quit in today’s strong anti-smoking environment where there are inevitably “hard-core smokers” who smoke despite their own medical circumstances and continue to smoke when it is evidently not in their best interest.  Each of the five cases are typical of the type of smokers who might present to a medical service or to a smokers’ clinic. Though based on evidence, there is less of a “one-size-fits all” approach in this module and interventions are tailored to the individual. As you progress through the cases you will notice that each individual has their own strategy devised for them.

Format: There are five cases in this module, each addressing a different complexity in relation to smoking cessation. Each case consists of statistics, expert feedback, multiple-choice, true/false and short answer questions to assist with your learning.
