Webinar: Treating tobacco dependence in corrections settings

Tobacco is the psychoactive substance most widely used by prisoners. Whereas a remarkable decline in smoking prevalence rates has been observed in the general population where tobacco control policies are being implemented, no comparable changes have occurred in prisons over the last decades. This creates a need for effective interventions to reduce health risks to both detainees and staff. This webinar will discuss health education and tobacco cessation in the criminal justice system.

This webinar is ideal for behavioral health professionals, tobacco use dependence treatment (TUDT) professionals, tobacco intervention specialists, or any public health professional who is interested in strengthening their knowledge and skills.
