The California Smokers’ Helpline is pleased to host this free webinar, How to Talk with Patients about Smoking Cessation and Anxiety, on Wednesday, March 23rd from noon to 1pm PST.

The relationship between anxiety and smoking is a significant concern among health professionals. Smokers often use cigarettes to help them manage anxiety. This reliance on cigarettes to reduce anxiety can keep smokers from even trying to quit. And if they do quit, anxiety can trigger relapse. This webinar will address key strategies to help smokers with anxiety to quit.

The following continuing education credits are offered for this course: CA BBS, APA, CCAPP, CAADE, and CME.
