The WHO e-Learning course Training for primary care providers: brief tobacco interventions

The WHO e-Learning course “Training for primary care providers: brief tobacco interventions” is converted from Part III of WHO training package “Strengthening health systems for treating tobacco dependence in primary care”, which was published in 2013 to assist countries in taking one of their first steps towards providing comprehensive tobacco dependence treatment to all tobacco users by integrating brief tobacco interventions (brief advice) into primary care.
