Event description

NHS Health Scotland, in partnership with ASH Scotland and the Scottish Tobacco-free Alliance, would like to invite you to attend the 11th national Scottish Smoking Cessation Conference.

Smoking is a key contributor to health inequalities. It affects every social group but the highest smoking rates are found within areas of high socio-economic deprivation, and in particular groups, such as those experiencing mental health problems and prisoners.

Conference delegates will have the opportunity to consider latest research and practice, focusing on how to best engage with and support smokers in our priority groups.  Attendees will debate some of the key challenges and solutions in reducing smoking prevalence in Scotland through a coordinated smoking cessation service.

This conference is aimed at smoking cessation professionals, as well as those involved in tobacco prevention and protection.
