How to support patients who smoke to quit

In May 2018 Cancer Council WA held a series of seminars for a range of health professionals working in health services across Western Australia to learn more about best practice approaches to support patients who smoke. The seminars were delivered by Emma Dean, the lead smoking cessation pharmacist at Alfred Health in Victoria, who shared the experience of Alfred Health and their comprehensive approach to supporting patients to be smoke free.

PDFs of all the presentations that were delivered during this seminar series are listed by event below, as well as video footage from five of the seminars.  Thank you to the presenters for making these materials available.  We have also supplied some additional resources that provide further information about smoke free health services, including brief intervention and pharmacotherapy strategies.
