The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation's Bridging Cancer Care initiative. This collaborative 2 year project includes a series of capacity-building Tobacco Cessation Leadership Workshops in the Czech Republic to educate nurses on advances in tobacco control, cancer prevention, treatment and care.
The major identified needs in the Czech Republic are three-fold: (1) to address the epidemic of tobacco use and the resulting cancers in the Czech Republic, (2) to engage nurses in the fight against tobacco and cancer prevention, and (3) to build capacity among nurses in the Czech Republic to continue working on smoking cessation and thereby cancer prevention initiatives. The project seeks to educate nurses on advances in tobacco control, cancer prevention, treatment and care. The proposed project is a four-phased, two-year project that will build capacity among nurses in the Czech Republic to enhance their engagement in tobacco control and thereby cancer prevention.
