Smoking Cessation Refresher

***South Tyneside advisors ONLY***

Please note: this training is now delivered face to face


The NHS Stop Smoking Service is a successful initiative to support people in quitting smoking. All Smoking Cessation Advisors must attend annual refresher training to keep up to date with the latest Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) developments and behaviour change techniques.

What to expect 

We have changed to way we deliver the annual refresher training. We now offer quarterly sessions covering a different topic each time (for more, see below). You must attend at least one of these as part of your annual refresher. We will also share medication updates via bulletins throughout the year.

During the sessions, there will be an opportunity to discuss issues you face during your role as an advisor and learn from others who have experienced similar issues. We will contact you prior to the training for these.

The 4 refresher course topics will be:

Vapes 29th November 23
Smoking in pregnancy 28th Feb 24, 2pm - 5pm
Smoking and mental health 21st May 2024, 2pm - 5pm
Overview of addictive behaviours and how we can help 11th Sept 2024, 2pm - 5pm


Please note: all stop smoking advisors are required to attend an annual refresher as outlined in the service level agreement your practice holds with Public Health.
