Government of Canada Supports Program that Promotes Smoke-free Lifestyle

During National Non-Smoking Week, the Government of Canada announced funding for Picking Up the PACE (Promoting and Accelerating Change through Empowerment) – a smoking cessation resource program for health practitioners provided through the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). The program provides online courses for health practitioners as well as tools they can use with patients to help address multiple risk factors for smoking, such as excess alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, poor nutrition, stress and poor sleep. The program builds on CAMH's Training Enhancement in Applied Cessation Counselling and Health Project, which trains health practitioners on how to promote healthy living habits that can help Canadians decrease tobacco use. Read the news release.
