KyPQC presents this virtual training series K-PACT (Kentucky Perinatal Action for Concurrent Tobacco Treatment). This training was developed as a FREE perinatal tobacco treatment training series for all providers and staff caring for pregnant people of childbearing age. This training is American Medical Association (AMA) and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) accredited and includes Kentucky-specific statistics to best educate the providers across our state. There are FOUR self-paced modules that use professional narration, graphic design, animations, and knowledge checks to engage the learner. In addition, there are 4.0 free Continuing Education (CE) credits earned for completing the training.
Time, expertise, and confidence are often barriers to delivering tobacco cessation guidance, particularly amidst substance use recovery, but quitting smoking during recovery increases the chance of long term sobriety by 25%...and smoking is the single most modifiable risk factor for poor pregnancy outcome! It is therefore our hope to equip as many providers as possible across Kentucky with the simple tools they need to help people be smoke free. To date, we have had 80 providers from a variety of professions complete the training -- we would love to see that number to grow.
