The overall goal of the project is to extend the reach and depth of smoking cessation training within the Turkish healthcare system. In order to achieve this goal, we aim to create a cadre of nurses and psychologists trained in tobacco cessation who are able to introduce illness-specific as well as general cessation training within their own practice-based communities and sub-specialties. Our multi-disciplinary research team, comprised of U.S. and Turkish scientists, has an established track record carrying out culturally sensitive research and training in tobacco control and tobacco cessation (NIH-funded Project Quit Tobacco International, 2002–2014) in both international and national settings. We are dedicated to the development and implementation of culturally sensitive cessation training tailored to the needs of the Turkish population.
