26 Sep First Health Promotion Seminar was a Success!

The first in a series of professional development events hosted by CHNIG and de Souza was held September 22nd via OTN and webinar.

‘Smoking Cessation for your Practice’ was facilitated by Jennifer Tonn and was a smashing success.  Jennifer presented the evidence-based 4 A’s method with concrete tips to help nurses help their clients quit smoking. This informative session was based on the RNAO best practice guideline on smoking cessation.

The monthly seminars occur on the third Thursday of the month from 12-1pm. Upcoming sessions include ‘Ontario’s Aging at Home Strategy’ on October 20th with Joanne Crawford, and ‘Health Promotion, Chronic Disease Management Strategies for Nurses’ on November 17th with Patrick McGowan.

Please see the CHNIG calendar or the de Souza website for more details.
