EDUCATION TO INSPIRE - SKILLS TO MOTIVATE!
The Mayo Clinic - Nicotine Dependence Center's Tobacco Treatment Specialist Certification Training Program provides a reliable source for the most up-to-date, evidence based information on the best practices in tobacco dependence treatment. As an accredited program we bring our comprehensive experience to educational programs oriented toward professionals who are interested in incorporating nicotine dependence treatment into their practice and/or developing a service to meet the needs of tobacco dependent patients. The Mayo Clinic Tobacco Treatment Specialist (TTS) Certification Training Program is taught through a blended format; which includes both an online and an onsite component. Completion of the Tobacco Treatment Specialist Certification Training Program prepares the participant for certification as a TTS.
Target Audience: We welcome all professionals with a strong interest in the field of tobacco or health, or provide clinical care to people who use tobacco or e-cigarettes. Participants will learn how to provide effective evidence-based interventions for tobacco dependence. Many of our participants include, but are not limited to, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, dentists, dental hygienists, dietitians, psychiatrists, psychologists, respiratory therapists, mental health professionals, addiction professionals, counselors, and social workers. Professionals that work in the field of health academics, policy, and education would also benefit from the up-to-date research/information presented in our training.
