Incorporate Tobacco Cessation Services and Supports at Your Clinic

Cigarette smoking harms nearly every organ of the body, causes many diseases including heart disease and cancer, and reduces the health of smokers in general.

Primary care clinics are on the front lines of helping clients quit using tobacco. As such, BHWP and its partners, the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and ECHO Colorado, have issued a Request for Applications to join the 2016 Build a Clinic Learning Community.

The Build a Clinic program is a comprehensive curriculum designed to provide primary care practices with all the skills and knowledge they need to evaluate and redesign their current workflows to incorporate or augment tobacco cessation services and supports.

Applicant organizations should be (1) primary care practices (2) working in rural, provider shortage, or medically underserved areas and (3) ready and able to adopt or augment tobacco cessation services into existing clinical practice no later than six months after the program’s conclusion in September.

Deadline for applications is mid-February and space is limited!
