Intensive Tobacco Intervention (Parts 1 and 2)

If you can offer deeper discussion to assess and assist your clients with their tobacco use and are able to offer follow up appointments, we would suggest taking Intensive Tobacco Intervention.

In this learning unit, health professionals will be provided an evidence-based approach for intensive tobacco intervention. Participants will raise their awareness, knowledge and skill set to help clients who use, are exposed to, and who are trying to abstain from tobacco and tobacco-like product use.

Intensive Tobacco Intervention Part 1 includes:

  • Module 1: Tobacco Impact - Health Consequences, Guidelines and Policy
  • Module 2: Treating Tobacco Use as a Disorder - Intervention Approaches, Documentation and Cessation Supports


Intensive Tobacco Intervention Part 2 includes:

  • Module 3: Assessment, Collaborative Counselling and Planning for Change
  • Module 4: Client Centered Approach, Tobacco Programs and Systems


Participants of ITI are expected to be versed with a basic understanding of tobacco intervention pharmacology. The Tobacco Cessation Pharmacology unit, or equivalent learning, is recommended prior to taking the Intensive Tobacco Intervention unit. Participants must complete Part 1 of the course before they will be able to enroll in Part 2.
