Tobacco Control and Cancer Survivorship: From Science to Strategies

Tuesday, June 16, 2015 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm
EDT

The negative impact of tobacco use on the short and long term prognosis of cancer patients and survivors is increasingly well-understood.  Over the next three months, the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership will lead a concerted effort to highlight key research and intervention findings to address this issue.

The NCI Research to Reality cyber-seminar kicks off this three-part series by highlighting two innovative and successful interventions designed to deliver evidence-based tobacco control interventions to patients and survivors.

Dr. Elyse Park will articulate the importance of delivering evidence-based tobacco treatments to cancer patients and survivors.  

Sarah Mott and Jane Severson will describe the lessons learned through Michigan’s statewide collaborative to help people with cancer quit smoking.  Michigan’s experience in identifying at-risk patients and offering scientifically sound treatments illustrates the potential and challenges of addressing this issue. 

The final part of our session, as always, is dedicated to your questions and sharing.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of delivering evidence-based tobacco treatments to cancer patients and survivors
  • Identify new strategies to reach targeted populations, specifically cancer survivors, with relevant resources in well-established quitline programs
  • Discuss the potential implications of strategies specifically targeting cancer patients and survivors
