A study team from the Center for Addiction Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital will discuss their recent trial which found that training doctors and CHWs in evidence based practices for smoking cessation more than doubled quit rates for individuals with SMI. An active discussion will follow to listen and learn from those with field experience, particularly psychiatric rehabilitation workers, and to brainstorm ways to incorporate an emphasis on tobacco cessation into routine client care.
