Needing advice about how to help your client?

Are you helping a client to become smokefree, but in need of some advice or reassurance about your approach or your client’s situation?

A good first option is to ask other colleagues working in smoking cessation for input or advice. If there is no one on hand or able to answer the query you may have, contact your local district health board’s Smokefree Coordinator.
