Since 2004 NAQC has used conference call and webinar technology to offer members and partners an opportunity to dialogue with colleagues and experts from across North America on critical quitline-related topics. The 2012/13 Webinar Series will continue the long-standing mission of NAQC’s education and quality improvement efforts. As always, each webinar will serve as a vehicle to encourage dialogue on promising and better practices, new research findings, and implementation successes and challenges in order to improve quality, increase understanding of the evidence base, and ensure maximized access, use and effectiveness of quitline services.
Webinar topics in the 2012/13 series will focus primarily on the impacts of healthcare reform, national promotion efforts (including graphic health warning labels and media campaigns), and emerging technologies on our work – as a quitline community and as members of the broader tobacco control community.
Webinars will 1.5 hours long and hosted on one Wednesday each month.
