from NYC completed our comprehensive training program since 2017, improving their capacity and expertise to treat tobacco use disorder.
Training is just one of many practical tools and resources we offer to help programs integrate tobacco treatment. Your agency can move forward step by step through a proven quality improvement process. TCTTAC meets agencies where they are at in the Plan-Do-Study-Act process and can provide support throughout the process. In preparation, we recommend you review the Roadmap and share it with colleagues
Relying on TCTTAC’s Roadmap and technical assistance, your team can continually improve quality of care and implement best practices.
Secure leadership buy-in, form a workgroup, identify a staff champion, train and coach staff, and monitor progress. Cultures change as staff considers their own attitudes and assumptions around tobacco use.
Participating organizations adopt QI cycles for a specific time period (3 mos, 6 mos, 1 yr) so they can revise and address goals with each iteration. The implementation process is thus ongoing, and reflects systemic change and capacity-building over time.
