Building capacity for tobacco cessation among nurses in Turkey

By Mimi Nichter, PhD

At the recent ENSP International Conference on Tobacco Control in Athens, Greece, members of our Global Bridges project team had a session where we presented a range of papers from our project. The overall goal of Project Quit Tobacco International (QTI)-Turkey is to train a cadre of nurses in tobacco cessation who are able to introduce illness-specific as well as general cessation training within their own practice-based communities and sub-specialties. Our goals align with those of Global Bridges as we are mobilizing a network of healthcare professionals trained to advance evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment.

The session included the following presentations:
