Everything GPs and their practice teams need to know about e-cigarettes, Very Brief Advice and the QI support offer from CRUK

09 Oct 2019
GP Clinical Theatre 1

This workshop will outline the importance of smoking cessation as a means to prevent cancer. It will explore what GPs and their practice teams can do in as little as 30 seconds (Very Brief Advice) to support their patients. It will address concerns about e-cigarettes by sharing the evidence behind the RCGP's position statement on e-cigarettes. Lastly, the session will raise awareness of the free Quality Improvement support offer available to GPs from the CRUK Facilitator team to help GPs with cancer prevention and early diagnosis.

  • GPs will learn:
  • 1. about the evidence base for Very Brief Advice and what to say to patients
  • 2. about the evidence base on e-cigarettes and the RCGP recommendations on e-cigarettes
  • 3. about the CRUK facilitator team free support offer and its impact
