As a SMOKING CESSATION ADVISOR we recognise the important role you play in helping smokers to achieve their quitting goals. Here's some information we hope will be helpful to you in supporting smokers, as they navigate their quit journey.

Taking the opportunity to help motivate and support smokers to quit:

Using Very Brief Advice (VBA) with a smoker can help them gain the motivation to quit.   

The National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training (NCSCT) has training modules on VBA.

Helping smokers with long term conditions, to quit:

It's important to take every opportunity to advise smokers with long term conditions on the benefits of quitting.  Watch the story of Owen* whose smoking was never addressed, with devastating consequences.

In this video Dr. Roger Henderson demonstrates a way to approach a quit smoking discussion, with a long term condition patient.
