28th - 31st May 2019

Building on our previous CPD courses on tobacco control and alcohol policy, the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies is delighted to be offering the CPD course on nicotine and tobacco again in 2019!

Taught by world-leading academics and practitioners, the module is aimed at professionals working in a range of organisations who are interested in public health and policy in the UK or internationally.

In addition to the topics covered on our previous tobacco CPDs, we will also be examining in detail the current evidence on tobacco harm reduction, electronic cigarettes and other nicotine-containing devices.
