Knowledge and Evaluation Support Newsletter


This Knowledge and Evaluation Support newsletter highlights two projects. The first, the Niagara Pharmacy Quit Smoking Pilot Program, was a program to support smoking cessation in community pharmacies. The second, Youth Tobacco Prevention with Dental Professionals, sought to distribute informational material related to preventing tobacco use to dental professionals working in both the community and in public health unit dental offices centred across the South West TCAN. The findings from these two studies are expected to be used to inform future regional cessation and youth tobacco prevention programming.
