The Intersection of Behavioral Health and Nicotine Addiction: The Respiratory Therapist’s Role

Timezone Time
Eastern 2:00 PM
Central 1:00 PM
Mountain 12:00 PM
Pacific 11:00 AM

Category Clinical Practice Speaker Gabrielle Davis, MPH, MA, RRT, RRT-NPS, RRT-ACCS, CTTS, CHES Date Sep 3, 2020 1:00 PM

Respiratory therapists (RTs) have the privilege of serving populations of all ages that are directly and indirectly impacted by nicotine addiction. Due to our position, RTs can be and should be armed with the information to assist people interested in nicotine cessation regardless of the reason they are receiving care. It is a myth that every individual with acute/chronic behavioral health conditions are uninterested in nicotine cessation. It is also untrue that the addition of attempting to quit nicotine can exacerbate a behavioral health, mental health, or any medical condition.  It is imperative that RTs take every chance to offer people the opportunity to have information about cessation and function as a health care advocate that can provide the information they need to be successful in quitting.
