CEU Course Description

Although smoking rates in the United States have declined substantially, these rates are still too high and they disproportionately impact many vulnerable populations.  The purpose of this intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, is to summarize the scope of tobacco use, its cost to society, its effects and consequences, and how specific individuals are impacted by the use of cigarettes and other nicotine products.  Treatments for tobacco dependence are discussed as well as prevention strategies and research efforts to better understand nicotine addiction.

CEU Course Objectives
