Supporting Smoking Cessation Care in Cardiovascular Settings for Australian Cardiovascular Clinicians
Presented by: Prof. Andrew Pipe, Prof. Timothy Kleinig, Prof. Garry Jennings, Sheila Jala, and Dawn Mcivor

Research suggests patients who quit smoking after a cardiovascular event have a substantially lower risk of a secondary cardiovascular event and all-cause mortality.[1,2] Smoking cessation is a critically important means of secondary prevention post-stroke or cardiac event and should be considered an important part of holistic patient care.

This webinar will bring together international and Australian experts in cardiovascular management to discuss the importance of smoking cessation for people with cardiovascular disease and how clinicians can best support cessation.

Learning objectives:
• Build knowledge of the impact of smoking on cardiovascular patient outcomes
• Understand the benefits, treatment efficacy and cost-effectiveness of smoking cessation in cardiovascular care
• Develop skills and confidence to implement practice change and deliver best-practice smoking cessation care in clinical stroke and cardiac settings

This event is brought to you by Quit Centre in partnership with Stroke Foundation, with support from the Heart Foundation.

The National Best Practice Support Service for Nicotine and Smoking Cessation is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care under the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs Program.
