Examples of Integrating Smoking Cessation Content

This presentation was shared with RNAO by Valerie Fiset, Professor of Nursing Studies at Algonquin College. It is a lecture that she does with year 3 BScN students that focuses on the care of the client with COPD.  She makes the link to smoking cessation in this topic, and has the students do a role play as part of the class activity.  They use the "smoking cessation interaction tool" as observers to give their partners feedback as well as an assessment tool.
