The National Centre for Smoking Cessation & Training (NCSCT) has launched a new online training module for health and social care professionals to help protect children and families from the harms of secondhand smoke.
The new, free online training module has been developed for anyone who comes into contact with smokers and their families. There are short film clips to demonstrate possible interactions with families, building knowledge and skills to deliver the intervention, as well as information on the harms caused by secondhand smoke and why it is important to raise the issue.
There is also a short assessment with a certificate available on successful completion to provide evidence of continuing professional development (CPD).
For more information and to take the training visit the NCSCT website.
