Join us for a presentation on the Help 2 Quit program, a project of the West Virginia Perinatal Partnership to improve birth outcomes by reducing smoking before, during and after pregnancy. PLUS, the important role the provider plays in helping parents and caregivers understand the harmful effects of 2nd and 3rd hand smoke on babies and young children. Integrating effective practices into existing systems of care will be discussed. The training will address a range of topics, including:

  • Evidence-based, best practice brief counseling intervention
  • Pharmacotherapy, including during pregnancy and lactation
  • Billing and reimbursement, including CPT codes, reimbursement rates and other FAQs
  • Information about the WV Tobacco Quitline and how to proactively refer to the service
  • How to access free tobacco cessation patient education materials
  • Identify effective prevention strategies to lessen the impact of second and third hand smoke on the pediatric population.
  • Explain role and responsibilities of pediatric providers in addressing tobacco harms, prevention and treatment with their patients and their families
  • Describe effective interventions and resources available to pediatric providers to help them address smoking by parents and caregivers of their patients.

This project is made possible through a generous grant from the WV Bureau for Public Health, Division of Tobacco Prevention and the Office of Maternal, Child and Family Health
