TOBACCO DEPENDENCE PHARMACOTHERAPY

February 3, 2022, 12:00pm-5:00pm ET

7.5 CME hours

Course Description: Medication strategies for tobacco use continue to evolve, with the use of pre-quit treatment, extended treatment, low-dose varenicline, high-dose nicotine, and combination treatment. Most medical providers are unaware of how or when to use these effective approaches.

 

This training is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and tobacco treatment specialists who work with smoking cessation medications and would benefit from an understanding of the current research guiding smoking cessation pharmacotherapy. The course will provide an overview of the neurobiology that gives rise to nicotine dependence and how various medications impact that neurobiology. We will provide guidance on treatment that is relevant to most clinicians including:

  • approaches to varenicline use that maximize efficacy and minimize side effects;

  • use of combination medication treatment

  • evidence for the use of pre-quit smoking cessation medications

  • use of extended post-quit medications

  • and the use of adaptive treatment

 

We explore specific cases, such as use of tobacco treatment medications in hospitalized patients, surgical patients, acute cardiac care, renal failure, cancer treatment, e-cigarette use, oral tobacco use, and adolescent treatment, as well as treatment of light-intermittent smokers and high-dependence smokers. The course is designed to provide practical guidance for clinicians and lead to real change in clinical practice.

Agenda:

  • Foundations of Tobacco Dependence: (pre-course module): Asynchronous, 2.0 hours

  • Pharmacotherapy for Tobacco Use: Agents and Evidence: Synchronous, via Zoom, 2.0 hours

  • Case-Based Tobacco Use Pharmacotherapy: Synchronous via Zoom, 2.0 hours

  • Integration of Medications and Behavioral Treatment in Clinical Practice: Synchronous, via Zoom, 1.5 hours

Course Faculty: Dr. James Davis, Director, Duke Smoking Cessation Program

Prerequisites: This is an advanced course designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists who work with smoking cessation medications. The course would also be ideal for individuals who have already received training as a tobacco treatment specialist and wish to deepen their knowledge about pharmacotherapy for tobacco use treatment.
