WHAT OUR PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING ABOUT DUKE-UNC TTS...

Curtis Hartley

Burlington, NC

I feel that I can approach anyone smoking at any stage of wanting to quit confidently and, at the very least, leave them with the idea that when they are ready, I'll be here with open arms.
 

Tiffany Forbes

Richmond, VA

Being part of this collaborative space felt like unlocking a treasure chest of knowledge. Connecting with fellow specialists provided a unique opportunity to explore resources, gain insights, and receive valuable feedback from peers in the field.

Lani Callison

Brevard, NC

Immediately post completion of the Duke-UNC TTS Training Program, I found that I was already integrating that exceptional knowledge and training into my work. It is making me better at my job.
DUKE-UNC TTS: A UNIQUE EDUCATIONAL PARTNERSHIP

 

The Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program is a collaboration of three leaders in tobacco treatment, education, and research--the Duke Smoking Cessation Program, the University of North Carolina Tobacco Treatment Program, and the North Carolina Division of Public Health--and has been making TTS education accessible to medical, behavioral and public health professionals in North Carolina and beyond since 2016.

The primary aim of the program is to train health professionals to provide evidence-based treatment for tobacco use and dependence. Our comprehensive tobacco treatment specialist training and intensive CE Short Courses provide an impactful education experience for a wide variety of professionals, including clinicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, public health policy-makers, and more.

In early 2020, the Duke-UNC Tobacco Treatment Specialist Training Program first became available as a virtual, web-based experience. Through a combination of interactive virtual classes and online self-paced training, Duke-UNC TTS offers leading edge continuing education in a fun and engaging online experience.

Program options include 4-day and single-day virtual programs, as well as sponsored virtual or onsite customized tobacco treatment events for your organization.

DUKE-UNC TTS TRAINING MANUAL


The Duke-UNC TTS Training Program manual, written by over 40 distinguished doctors, public health officials, and other healthcare specialists, is the authoritative text on tobacco dependence treatment. Combining the best practices of public health and research with the invaluable insights of doctors who have spent their professional lives treating tobacco use across various settings, this innovative resource places the Duke-UNC TTS Training Program at the forefront of efforts to educate and empower healthcare and behavioral health professionals to take on the challenge of tobacco in their communities.
