Event description

Description

Do you want to…

  • effectively motivate, encourage and support your patients to reduce their cancer risk by quitting smoking or improving their lifestyle?
  • provide patients with the latest, evidence-based and practical information available?
  • start tobacco cessation or weight management intervention earlier to reduce risk of cancer and other chronic disease?

This training module provides an overview of how to effectively engage with patients about their smoking or body weight. It equips participants to provide information and support around tobacco cessation and weight management during routine care.

A range of resources will be provided to use in the practice or with patients.

This training module is delivered by specialists from Cancer Council Victoria through the Quit and LiveLighter campaigns. Book in for both LiveLighter and Quit training or choose one session.
