QUIT (Quit Using and Inhaling Tobacco) Smoking Cessation Program

Across Canada, provinces are enhancing pharmacists’ scopes of practice to include prescribing smoking cessation medications, offering reimbursement for professional services and even providing free smoking cessation products to patients. The time has never been better to ramp up your knowledge and skills in the area of smoking cessation.

New in 2014: e-cigarettes, new pharmacotherapy data, provincial updates and more

Whether you need a refresher on nicotine replacement therapies and other smoking cessation aids, or want to perfect your patient care skills in smoking cessation counselling and care planning, CPhA’s 5.0 CEU online QUIT continuing program will enhance your skills, confidence and ability to provide smoking cessation services. The course covers:

  • Intervention
  • Addiction
  • Pharmacotherapy
  • Counselling
  • Creating a smoking cessation program in your pharmacy

Plus, all QUIT participants  have access to a wealth of indispensible tools and resources to help you as you implement smoking cessation programs in your pharmacy. Download our Course Prospectus for learning objectives, authors and accreditation information.


Tools and resources

All English-language QUIT practice tools developed for the QUIT CE program, including the Ontario Workflow and Documentation Tool, are also available to CPhA affiliates/associates. En raison de la réduction de la demande, le programme de formation continue CESSER de l'APhC ne sera plus offert en français. Les outils pratiques et les ressources du programme CESSER en français continueront d'être offerts aux membres de l'APhC.

Live workshops

Based on demand, CPhA is also able to provide this continuing education program as a 6-CEU live workshop version. Please contact to coordinate a workshop in your area.
