The overarching goal of Beyond the 5 A’s is to improve the frequency and effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions provided by health professionals by improving the quality of training delivered to them on this critical topic. Beyond the 5 A’s will bring those who are currently designing and delivering smoking cessation provider education programs together with public health tobacco cessation experts, systems decision-makers, healthcare providers and researchers to translate recent advances in both evidence and practice into action that will improve the frequency and effectiveness of smoking cessation interventions.
Attendees will examine recent advances in evidence and practice and discuss their own successful approaches, strategies, techniques and challenges, to improve the effectiveness and quality of smoking cessation interventions. To learn more about the conference objectives, visit the About Us page.
