About the Course:

The relationship between asthma and smoking is a significant concern among health professionals. Asthma disproportionately affects smokers. Tobacco smoke is one of the most common asthma triggers and can increase the severity of attacks. Secondhand smoke is also a risk factor for new cases of asthma, especially among preschool aged children who have not already exhibited asthma symptoms. This webinar will address key strategies to help smokers with asthma to quit.

This course is based on the , How to Talk With Patients About Smoking Cessation and Asthma created by Lyne Goodlett Scott, MD in 2016.
