Alternative treatments for smoking cessation webinar

Professor Hayden McRobbie
Resource Type: NDARC Seminars

Professor Hayden McRobbie presented at the NDARC Webinar series on Thursday 11 March, 2021.

This presentation explored some of the alternative treatments for smoking cessation.

In 2005 the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence commissioned a review of Non-NHS treatments for smoking cessation. This included the use of cytisine, rapid smoking, Allen Carr’s Easyway to quit smoking, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, Nicobloc and Nicobrevin. Over 15 years later, has the evidence changed? This presentation summarises the current data on some of these alternative treatments.
