Training to help stop smokers

IPSWICH health professionals with an interest in helping smokers quit are invited to register for Cancer Council Queensland’s Quit Educator training course being held on March 21-22.

Course participants will be trained over two days in brief intervention and how to run smoking cessation groups, which can be operated within their local communities or workplaces.

A variety of health professionals are eligible for the course, being run at Cancer Council Queensland’s Fortitude Valley office, including social workers, occupational health and safety officers and health promotion officers.

Cancer Council Queensland tobacco programs team leader Rachel Hull said it was important to offer smoking cessation training to health professionals.

“The Quit Educator course will provide local health professionals with the information they need to provide excellent quit-smoking training and brief intervention counselling for their clients, community groups and colleagues,” she said.

The course will be held over two days and costs $350 per person.

Registration forms are available from www.cancerqld.org.au or by contacting Rachel Hull at Cancer Council Queensland on 5503 3700 or rachelhull@cancerqld.org.au.
