The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) Public Health Division released a report “summarizing the successes and lessons learned from residential treatment facilities implementing tobacco-free policies.” Part of OHA’s efforts to implement tobacco-free policies included trainings for staff provided by BHWP. The report states:
“The trainings included a workshop on tobacco-free policy implementation in behavioral health settings…and featured a train-the-trainer component on evidence-based tobacco cessation curriculum. Most of the 126 attendees were mental health and addictions professionals. A small number of public health and social service professionals also attended…Evaluation results from the trainings indicated that a large majority of participants found the information to be very useful (47 percent) and somewhat useful (44 percent).”
Thank you to OHA for inviting us to assist in your tobacco freedom efforts!
