Nurses leading the way to a Smokefree Aotearoa 2025

Nurses leading the way to a smokefree Aotearoa 2025 Nursing Symposium was held on 19th March 2015 showcasing the strength and commitment to tobacco control policy, innovative grass-roots practice, and research.

The programme featured Dr Mark Wallace-Bell’s keynote presentation as he walked delegates through an elegant argument to the empathetic heart of nursing values where every nurse’s communication skills are as critical to the success of a smoking cessation intervention as the intervention itself. 

Speakers came from a range of nursing backgrounds, grass roots nursing in primary care, mental health, hospital and prison settings, research and education.  The speakers biographies make for an interesting read and the following presentations from the day are now available.
