Our goal is to develop a network of trained primary health care (PHC) providers in Crete, Greece that will integrate treatment of tobacco dependence into daily clinical practice and become champions of tobacco control policy. The above capacity development and creation of this new “node” of the Global Bridges network will be performed through the triangulation of a formal PHC professional training program based on the Global Bridges resources, the local adaptation of an evidence-based approach successfully applied in Canada, and post-training follow-up to enhance sustainability and network development.
