Today, on World No Tobacco Day, FIP publishes a new handbook and knowledge and skills guide for pharmacists to support tobacco cessation and treat tobacco dependence. The handbook developed in collaboration with an international group of experts from various organisations, including the World Health Organization, outlines the latest evidence-based practices, techniques and strategies for pharmacists to help people on the often-challenging journey to a tobacco-free life and remaining abstinent. “The information contained in this handbook is practicable and tailored to the needs of pharmacists. Using this new resource from FIP, pharmacists can contribute to improving public health and reducing the large burden of tobacco use on our healthcare systems,” said Dr Inês Nunes da Cunha, FIP practice development and transformation projects manager, and a co-author of the handbook.
