TOPIC: Innovations in Inpatient Treatment for Tobacco Dependence

Kimber Richter, PhD with the University of Kansas School of Medicine, an international expert in hospital-based tobacco treatment,  will describe protocols and outcomes of the UKanQuit program at the University of Kansas Hospital.  Dr. Richter will present methods for providing brief inpatient tobacco treatment and referring patients at discharge for ongoing treatment in the community.     

She will also describe best practices for psychiatric facilities and the innovative telemedicine groups that UKanQuit delivers to the new psychiatric facility at Strawberry Hill in Kansas City, Kansas. 

  • Did you know that psychiatric inpatients who smoke cigarettes but who fail to receive nicotine replacement to control cravings/withdrawal are significantly more likely to leave Against Medical Advice?

This presentation is free for all. Especially welcome are staff from community hospitals and other inpatient treatment facilities, including the State Mental Health Hospitals and State Institution Alternatives, Nursing Facilities for Mental Health, private psychiatric and addiction treatment facilities, inpatient VA health care facilities, and Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities. 

The UKanQuit program can be adapted for implementation in your facility.
