Education and Training
Dr Debbie Robson has developed a bespoke E-learning course on tobacco dependence treatment in mental health settings, in collaboration with South London and Maudsley (SLAM). The course has been completed by over 1000 staff and is currently being redesigned and updated in line with the current evidence base.
Dr Debbie Robson has also developed a face to face advanced skills tobacco dependence treatment training: we are evaluating its effect on knowledge, attitudes and implementation of training in in-patient staff, and community staff.
Prof Ann McNeill co-leads the UKCTAS education and training theme. This includes a number of courses including an MSc Alcohol Module at KCL and an MPH tobacco module run from the University of Nottingham.
