Dartmouth College, in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have released an updated interactive web-based program entitled, “Smoking Cessation for Pregnancy and Beyond: A Virtual Clinic.”  The online program provides evidence-based training, through use of interactive patient simulations, to apply best practice approaches for helping pregnant women quit smoking. 

Those who may benefit from the training are physicians, physician assistants, nurse-midwives, registered nurses, licensed practical/vocational nurses, nurse practitioners, certified health educators, other health educators, pharmacists, health professional students and other health professionals that may interact with women of reproductive age.
