This is the first of four modules which address smoking cessation by
creating conversations with patients who smoke. This module provides
an update on the prevalence of the problem and offers some new
insights into heritability, which may explain why some people become
addicted to smoking. Co-morbidities associated with smoking are
introduced in a case study about Ray, a 42-year old man, overweight
and with a persistent cough.

Learning objectives:
  • Recognise the demographics of smokers
  • Discuss the morbidity and mortality attributable to smoking among your patients
  • Understand the science of addiction
  • Recognise the signs of dependence and withdrawal.
This learning activity (Modules 1-4) is approved with ACRRM for 1 core PDP point per module.
