The new DIMENSIONS Tobacco-Free Policy Toolkit was released last week. This has great updates, is very interactive, and is appropriate for behavioral health, integrated care, specialty care, many hospital settings, criminal justice re-entry settings, and public health agencies. It is located on the web at https://www.bhwellness.org/toolkits/Tobacco-Free-Facilities-Toolkit.pdf
Conversations for Change is a series of short videos to assist interdisciplinary providers effectively use the 5A’s model. These were developed to be integrated into tobacco intervention trainings or used alone. There are also instructional worksheets for each video. You can find the videos at https://www.bhwellness.org/resources/videos
Another toolkit that was recently developed is the the DIMENSIONS Peer Support Program Toolkit at https://www.bhwellness.org/resources/toolkits/peer. This toolkit is designed for use by organizations that serve populations that would benefit from a peer support program. The purpose of this toolkit is to provide evidence-based information to help individuals and organizations understand the value of adding peer specialists to their teams. The toolkit also provides practical tools and step-by-step instructions to plan for, implement, and sustain a successful peer support program. We created the toolkit to supplement our training to peer specialists and providers on tobacco cessation, weight management and nutrition, and whole health.
