The ‘National Quit Training and Resource Centre for Nicotine Cessation’ (‘Quit Centre’) is a national best practice support service for nicotine cessation.

More specifically, it will provide:
Accredited online training specific to primary health care professionals

Information about Quitline, including referral instructions.
The Quit Centre has been developed by the Quit unit of Cancer Council Victoria, and is made possible by funding from the AustralianGovernment Department of Health under the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs Program. The Quit Centre also acknowledges with thanks the significant investment by VicHealth to create the foundational knowledge-base and online training platform, and the extensive and ongoing in kind support from Cancer Council Victoria.
