Quit and Stroke Foundation have partnered to deliver a webinar for stroke clinicians on embedding best practice smoking cessation care in stroke settings.
Following on from the success of Quit and Stroke Foundation’s June 9 webinar on delivering smoking cessation care in stroke settings, we will be hosting a follow-up webinar on Wednesday August 25, 2pm - 3pm EST to further discuss key concepts and dive into case studies.

Pre-webinar learning task
“Thank you for the online training. It was achievable and increased my confidence. Because of the training, I felt confident in my approach and together we built a lot of confidence in the patient about his chances of quitting successfully.” - Deidre Rennick, stroke coordinator at the Wimmera Health Care Group
If you were unable to attend the previous webinar on June 9, watch the full recording here to ensure you'll get the most out of the follow-up webinar.
If you haven’t already, we also strongly encourage you to complete Quit’s Smoking Cessation Brief Advice Essentials training or Smoking Cessation Brief Advice for Health Services (for those working in inpatient settings). This will provide you with foundation knowledge about best practice smoking cessation care and tobacco dependence treatment and allow time during the webinar to explore the application of smoking cessation care to the stroke setting.
Both courses take approximately 30-45 mins to complete and a certificate is issued upon completion.
Click here to enrol in training and select either Essentials or Health Services training from the course catalogue. Courses are free for VIC, SA and WA learners. A $20 cost-recover fee applies to health professionals located in other states and territories.
Is this webinar for me? Yes, if you're a health professional working with people who have experienced stroke or TIA, including a consultant and registrar, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, nurse, social worker and more, in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Call for case studies
This webinar will be an opportunity to share and reflect on examples of when you have worked with stroke survivors to help them stop smoking - what worked well and what could be improved. If you would like to submit a case study, please register interest by emailing SMcGinniss@strokefoundation.org.au. Do not submit any patient-identifiable information.

Training and resources for stroke clinicians
Stroke clinicians are well placed to deliver smoking cessation brief advice to patients. A brief advice conversation helps patients access best practice smoking cessation care, and is quick and effective. Quit and Stroke Foundation have partnered to provide online training and resources to stroke clinicians, assisting them to support patients to stop smoking and improve stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) outcomes.
