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. Promising and better practices, new research findings, and implementation successes and challenges have consistently been highlighted in order to improve quality, increase understanding of the evidence base, and ensure maximized access, use and effectiveness of quitline services.
Considering recent national
policy initiatives in Canada and the U.S., the focus of the 2011/2012 NAQC
Seminar Series will be topics related to preparing for implementation of
graphic health warning labels, working with Medicaid to ensure access to
cessation and building public-private partnerships.
Webinars as part of the
Seminar Series will take place one time per month from December, 2011 through
July, 2012. In addition to Seminar Series webinars NAQC will host Hot Topic webinars on
emerging issues periodically throughout the year, giving ample notice to
members to ensure maximum participation. Recordings of all NAQC webinars and their ancillary documents will be posted to
the NAQC member-only archive for members who are not able to participate.
