Overview: The Duke – UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program (TTS Program) is a collaborative effort by the Duke University Smoking Cessation Program, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Tobacco Treatment Program, and the Tobacco Prevention and Control Branch of the NC Department of Public Health, all leaders in tobacco treatment, education, and research. This innovative partnership was initiated by a request from the Tobacco Prevention and Control Branch, NC Division of Public Health, as a result of the demand for this state-based resource from the many partners working on evidence-based tobacco use prevention and cessation in North Carolina. The course faculty includes physicians, researchers, therapists, pharmacists, and public policy experts, all with expertise in tobacco dependence. The primary aim of the program is to train Tobacco Treatment Specialists to provide individuals in North Carolina and across the nation with the highest caliber evidence-based treatment available for tobacco use and dependence. The broader goal of the TTS program is to reduce the impact of tobacco use on the local, state, and US population. Structure: The TTS Program consists of four days of on-site (face-to-face) training and combines findings from the most current evidence-based research on pharmacotherapy, population-based issues, practical guidance on running a practice and targeted skills in tobacco dependence counseling. Information is provided in a workbook and through interactive lectures, as well as multiple problem-based learning activities, applied practice problems and practice counseling. A tobacco treatment manual, including an online resource guide solely for TTS participants, is provided during the course and may also be used as a reference guide after the completion of the course. Prerequisites : Prerequisites for the training include an associate degree and licensure or certificate in a health care profession (e.g. registered nurse, respiratory therapist) or a bachelor’s degree. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
