Intake, Assessment and Treatment Planning Guide
The QuitWorks Community
The Center for Tobacco Treatment Research and Training (CTTRT) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School has a long history of delivering high quality programs for health care professionals in Massachusetts and across the country. Two standard trainings are available.
Basic Skills for Working with Smokers, is a self-paced online program that can be completed as a stand-alone course and is also a pre-requisite for the TTS Core Training.
TTS Core Training is an intensive 4-day program, conducted in Worcester, MA twice a year. This level of training provides a deeper understanding of tobacco dependence and the behavioral and pharmacological methods to treat it.
Facilities that are working towards adopting QuitWorks in their clinical system may be eligible for free, customized training to help staff increase their knowledge of tobacco dependence and how to utilize resources such as QuitWorks effectively. The CTTRT staff provide the training. Contact us for more information about how customized training can help you to integrate QuitWorks into your health care settings.
The CTTRT, with the Massachusetts General Hospital Tobacco Research and Treatment Center, developed an Intake, Assessment and Treatment Planning guide to assist clinicians to conduct a thorough patient assessment and develop a treatment plan.
The Guide walks the clinician through how to use this tool and includes a blank template, a case study with a sample completed intake and assessment form, and a quick guide to pharmacotherapy.
