Clearing the air: Busting myths about nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation

This module aims to help all HCPs to systematically identify smokers, assess their readiness to quit and nicotine dependence, and offer them advice on smoking cessation support. In addition, this module looks at the efficacy and safety of nicotine-replacement therapy (NRT), and provides a suite of resources for supporting patients through their quit journey.

Taking control of problem drinking

Alcohol consumption is Australia’s second largest cause of preventable morbidity and mortality, yet problem drinking is poorly managed compared to other chronic conditions or lifestyle issues. This module will help GPs understand how to detect and identify problem drinking, and manage it using a multidisciplinary management strategy.
