West Virginia University School of Dentistry in cooperation with the Health Sciences Center Office of Interprofessional Education is one of 19 nationally and internationally Tobacco Treatment Training Programs certified by the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP).
Professionals in the fields of medicine, dentistry, social work, pharmacy, nursing and public health will present evidence-based strategies to assist patients and clients interested in tobacco cessation.
A new National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice is on the horizon through a collaborative effort among the Association for Tobacco Use and Dependence (ATTUD), the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP), and the Association for Addiction Professionals (NAADAC).
One requirement for achieving national certification includes the successful completion of an accredited training program such as the WVU CTTTP.
Target Audience: This course is recommended for physicians, physician assistants, dentists, dental hygienists, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, social workers and any other health care provider that encounters tobacco using patients/clients.
