The Minto-Mapleton Family Health Team continues to offer smoking cessation services at our Palmerston, Clifford and Drayton locations.
Our staff is well qualified to help you quit smoking. The Pharmacist, Kinesiologist and one of our Nurse Practitioners have been trained through the University of Toronto on Essential Strategies for Tobacco Cessation in primary care (TEACH). Together, they are running the Family Health Team’s smoking cessation program.
The FHT is participating in a Ministry of Health and Long Term Care funded project that began in July 2011. The project is evaluating the effectiveness of offering counseling support and free nicotine replacement therapy in the form of Nicoderm patch, lozenge, inhaler, mist or gum to our patients.
Interested in quitting? For more information, contact your physician or nurse practitioner for a referral or contact us directly through any means listed on our Contact page.
