Web-based training programs
Rx for Change provides live and web-based CE programs at no cost, for various health professional disciplines: medicine, nursing, respiratory care, and pharmacy. We also offer a 30-minute Ask-Advise-Refer CE program for pharmacy technicians. See Rxforchange.ucsf.edu/continuing_education.php
For learners who wish to move â€śbeyond the basics,â€ť we will soon be providing longer training programs (6 hours). Also, we provide a 6-hour train-the-trainer program for faculty who wish to integrate the Rx for Change content at their school. More intensive Tobacco Treatment Specialist programs are offered by other institutions: Attud.org (fees apply)
