UMASS Tobacco Treatment Specialist (TTS) Training Program Sponsored by OneBreath & Society for Respiratory Care in Saudi Arabia

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

TTS training program has been offered by OneBreath in Saudi Arabia 4 times, twice a year since 2016. Around 80% of our participants are physicians and the rest of our participants are health care providers from different disciplines. We are happy to hear from participants about changing their tobacco treatment practice after joining our TTS program. Some of them have started applying what they learned from online basic skills course. We continue to receive a positive feedback after the TTS training. Besides Saudi Arabia, We've had trainees come to the TTS training from other countries in the region. Some of the countries including; Kuwait, Bahrain, Sudan and Pakistan.

We are proud that such an up-to-date TTS program is making a difference in tobacco treatment practice nationwide and regionally. We are confident that the TTS program will continue to serve our nation and other countries around.  Especially in teaching evidence-based training in tobacco treatment and prevention. OneBreath is now working with UMass Chan Medical School to translate some tobacco treatment materials into Arabic. This will be a good addition to other Arabic courses like Asthma/COPD educator course, and other health specific courses. Our 5th TTS training is going to be offered in April 2-5, 2018 in Riyadh.
