Smoking Cessation Training

Providing four free, online training modules targeting smoking cessation, MUSC Hollings Cancer Center researchers hope to reach health professionals and those in the lay public who want to know more about the latest in tobacco use, cessation, and treatments.

Hollings researchers in our Cancer Control program joined in a partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer to create this free online training course designed to educate a variety of audiences on the effects of smoking on cancer treatment outcomes and the best practices that can help those who use tobacco be effective in quitting. The course is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about how cancer care and tobacco use intersect.

The course is split into four self-paced modules that each address a specific aspect of smoking in cancer care settings:

  • Module One: Tobacco Use — Implications for Cancer Care
  • Module Two: Tobacco Use Screening and Assessment
  • Module Three: Treating Tobacco Use
  • Module Four: Specific Populations

Registered participants can choose to complete all four modules or only the ones that are applicable to their interests or health care role. Click here for more information or to enroll in the course.


I see smoking as a medical issue we need to treat to improve cancer care. Cessation after a cancer diagnosis is the best thing that can be done to make treatment better.
