Recommendations for a Comprehensive Smoking Cessation Framework

This framework for a Comprehensive Smoking Cessation Strategy

looks at the health and financial impact of smoking in the Province

of Manitoba, the benefits of smoking cessation, existing cessation

resources, target populations and evidence based practices as they

apply to both clinical and non-medical approaches for smoking

cessation. It then recommends a plan for cessation that sets out

a direction with goals and objectives that will positively improve

overall health outcomes while making concerted efforts to reduce

health disparities.






MANTRA Awareness & Cessation Tobacco Basics CD

The Tobacco Basics CD is a crash course PowerPoint presentation

on a number of topics related to tobacco. The presentation is highly

customizable including 12 topics that range from the influence of the

tobacco industry to the health and economic impacts of smoking,

to helping people to quit. This resource is perfect for people who want

to expand their knowledge of tobacco issues or want to present these

issues to others. Revised 2012.

MANTRA Motivator Meter

The motivation meter is a fun and effective tool provided to smokers

as an aid in promoting smoking reduction and/or cessation. This

popular tool measures the potential health benefits and amounts

of money that can be saved over selected periods of time, when

a smoker quits. On the reverse side is a list of smoking triggers

and ways to avoid the temptation.

MANTRA  Adapted Tobacco and

Health Behaviour Change Training Workshops

MANTRA offers one day, capacity building sessions for staff,

volunteers and community leaders to learn more about Tobacco

and Health Behaviour Change practices. In addition to a general

tobacco Health Behaviour Change package Making the Change,

MANTRA has produced specialized versions of the HBC training for

different population groups including First Nations, Inuit and Metis,

Addictions Recovery, and Mental Health Recovery.



Tobacco Awareness and Cessation:

A Peer Facilitator’s Guide

MANTRA has developed this easy to understand resource for anyone

who is interested in facilitating a smoking cessation/reduction group.

This resource is a self‐guiding, four session group facilitation manual

that is easy to read with straight forward directions and simple to

understand information about cessation/reduction. This can be used by anyone who is interested in running a four session smoking cessation/

reduction group. The facilitator can be an ex‐smoker but this manual

can also be used by helpers such as volunteers, support staff, health

providers working in community service or health agencies.
