The pharmacotherapy for tobacco cessation continues to evolve with new treatment options. Join host, Geoff Wall, with guest, Jake Galdo, as they discuss the role of the pharmacy team in tobacco cessation.
Pharmacotherapy alone may not be sufficient for tobacco cessation - counseling and support are often required. A new medication, cytisinicline, may provide additional options for treatment.
