Integrating Tobacco Treatment along the Continuum of Lung Cancer Screening
Integrating Tobacco Treatment along the Continuum of Lung Cancer Screening is a two-part module series developed for the Maine Lung Cancer Coalition by the MaineHealth Center for Tobacco Independence (CTI) in collaboration with Maine Quality Counts (QC). The goals of these online learning modules are to discuss the evidence for and provide recommendations on how to integrate evidence-based tobacco treatment for smokers along the continuum of the lung cancer screening process from the primary care setting to the lung cancer screening sites. These on-demand modules are designed to be informative, engaging and give you the opportunity to learn from wherever you are, on your own schedule.
