The Australian government has ambitious targets to slash smoking rates to 5% by 2030. GPs, and other health professionals, have been highlighted as playing a key role in achieving this target, with increasing requirements on smoking cessation counselling.
This webinar aims to unpack the implications of the National Tobacco Strategy for GPs, how GPs can prepare for new public health campaigns, and discuss NRT counselling- with a focus on using NRT as a re-engagement tactic.
