Summary "The Manual of Smoking Cessation provides the crucial knowledge required if you are involved in helping smokers to stop. The manual provides facts, figures, suggested interventions and sources of further information to assist in providing evidence-based treatment for smokers wishing to stop. This manual covers the core content areas and key learning outcomes described in the Standard for Training in Smoking Cessation (Health Development Agency, 2003). The Manual of Smoking Cessation is structured in two concise parts: Part 1 provides essential information on smoking demographics, along with the risks of smoking and the benefits of stopping; Part 2 offers a range of practical advice to implement with clients."--BOOK JACKET.
