The National Center for Health in Public Housing (NCHPH) and the National Nurse-led Care Consortium (NNCC) hosted a webinar focused on strategies to support smoking cessation and substance use disorder (SUD) in primary care for residents of public housing. Speakers presented gaps in knowledge regarding policy related to public housing and smoking, more recently around the increased use and concern of vaping. Subject matter experts discussed the importance of clinical interaction, readiness to change, and implementation of motivational interviewing in mental health treatment while addressing substance use disorder. This session is intended for clinicians, RN care managers, social workers, and intake coordinators.
This toolkit was created to give nurses the tools to do their part in the national vaccine effort. It is designed to help you decrease vaccine hesitancy and increate vaccination rates in your community.
