Presentation Title: Use of oral Tobacco by BME Groups
This workshop will discuss techniques and best practice in accessing and delivering high quality tobacco cessation services to those from the BME and Polish communities. It will also highlight the rise in tobacco chewing amongst certain ethnic groups and outline proven treatment plans using traditional NRT to help overcome the addiction.

The workshop will outline how, when and where to set up clinics to get maximum throughput, generate publicity and interest through the media as well as outlining some key challenges and successes of running smoking cessation services in prisons.
