This webinar provides empirical evidence for safe and effective treatment for the condition of addiction to nicotine, or Tobacco Use Disorder (DSM-5), also referred to as Nicotine Dependence (DSM-IV-TR).

The cigarette has been identified as the deadliest artifact in the history of human civilization. Most tobacco users know the power of addiction and want to quit. Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of death and disease globally, and contributes to 6 of the 8 leading non-communicable diseases. Evidence tells a vivid and chilling story of the dire and urgent need to support smoking cessation. Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are ideally and uniquely placed to assess, and treat tobacco addiction and its impact on oral health, thereby saving lives and reducing the excess healthcare burden of tobacco.
