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

  • 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.

* This LinkedIn Group replaces the former Smoking Cessation Community, part of the MyCPhA secure online networking site for pharmacists.

We've been evaluating MyCPhA activity over the past year, and we don't believe that this platform is meeting your online networking needs.We have created the closed LinkedIn Group called Canadian Pharmacists as a space for you to network and share information. The CPhA team will control access to the group.

Therefore, MyCPhA (and the Smoking Cessation Community within it) will be discontinued as of March 20, 2014. If you have any favourite MyCPhA Diabetes resources or connections you don't want to lose, please log in before March 20 and save them to your own system.
