E-learning Smoking Cessation Program

This is

a program for all nurses to learn how to help their patients

who smoke. It could be a very helpful program

for campus-based nurses working with young adults who come

to campus clinics.

Accompanying the Guideline is an e-learning module you can

work through to learn how to apply a protocol consistent

with the Guideline.

Funded by the Government of Ontario (Smoke Free Ontario) and by Health Canada (Tobacco Control Programme), Leave The Pack Behind is a comprehensive, age-tailored, tobacco control initiative for young adults on post-secondary campuses.

Leave The Pack Behind assists occasional and regular smokers to quit smoking; protects non-smokers from second-hand smoke; prevents students from starting to smoke; and exposes tobacco industry tactics that keep people hooked on its deadly products.

Leave The Pack Behind uses a peer-to-peer approach. A small team of students from each campus runs the initiative under the supervision of a college/university staff member (usually a Nurse or Health Educator from the campus health clinic). Because conceptualization, content and design of most LTPB resources, programs, and services originate with post-secondary students, Leave The Pack Behind is highly appealing to the target audience.
