The project will consist of a variety of targeted activities such as in-person workshops, online e-learning education and public events. Importantly, a key focus will be to identify and support nurses who are ready to take on leadership roles in advancing tobacco control in the region. Patients and their families will benefit through the increase in the knowledge and ability of nurses to conduct smoking intervention efforts and engage in advocacy.

The project is financed by Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.
