The Training Enhancement in Applied Cessation Counselling and Health (TEACH) Project at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health provides training to health professionals. It also facilitates capacity building by: coordinating and facilitating ongoing community of practice activities; providing MAINPRO-C-accredited lunch and learn webinars for physicians, family health teams, and allied health professionals; making curriculum materials and clinical tools widely available to practitioners via www.teachproject.ca; evaluating the knowledge transfer and longitudinal outcomes of TEACH training; disseminating the TEACH curricula and format to a wide audience of program planners, researchers, and health educators through presentations at scientific conferences and publications; recruiting the expertise of former TEACH graduates to serve as regional practice leaders to further increase capacity and sustainability in the province; and working in collaboration and partnership with other organizations in Ontario, nationally, and internationally to disseminate knowledge and maximize resources. Every course offered by TEACH conforms to best practice guidelines with respect to adult learning theory and principles, and sessions are facilitated by experts in the fields of smoking cessation, behavioural, pharmacological and motivational interventions, and clinical applications.
