Kent Stop Smoking Service
The Kent Stop Smoking Service are currently offering free training session on smoking cessation to all dental staff – ‘Very Brief Intervention’ training.
The training aims to equip any patient / client facing member of staff with the confidence to raise the topic of smoking with their patients. The training also provides the staff members with information about what the Stop Smoking Service has to offer, how the programme works and the easiest way to make a referral. The training is one hour long and a member of the training team would be happy to attend a team meeting or at a time that best suits the needs of the dental surgery. The trainer would also bring with them leaflets and information about the Stop Smoking Service, as well as some literature about the other Health Improvement Services. To ensure that the training is operationally viable, we would require 6 or more people to be present for the training. There is no charge for this training.
Please note that this training will cover 1 hour a year that dentists must spend on mouth cancer CPD.
This training is only available to staff within Kent but does not cover the Medway area.
