Smoking Cessation

EuroPean Accredited Course on Tobacco Treatment – PLUS

European Network for Smoking and Tobacco Prevention - ENSP
The goal of EPACTT-PLUS is to continue the development and expansion of an accredited curriculum for tobacco cessation in 11 European countries and to enhance the formulation of a network of healthcare professionals that will be dedicated to advancing evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment. The project will utilize the extensive network of the European Network on Smoking and Tobacco Prevention (ENSP), and the material from two IGL&C grants, to promote the development of champions in both tobacco treatment and control. The project has two objectives: 1): To further develop, accredit and deliver a user friendly and accredited online training programme, in advanced tobacco treatment in 11 languages. (Category 1) and 2): To update, adapt, translate and disseminate the ENSP Guidelines for treating tobacco dependence in 11 languages. A comprehensive and integrated guideline based on scientific evidence and best practices, taking into account national circumstances. (Category 2). To assess the impact of the trainings, evaluation will be performed within a pre/post intervention assessment, to determine whether the EPACTT2 accredited elearning program when delivered among health care professional’s covers the practice gap and increases provider knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, perceived behavioral control, intentions and rates of provider delivery of tobacco treatment. Overall, this project will support the expansion of the Global Bridges Network through training and collaboration and would broaden its outreach in Eastern and Southern Europe.
