Call for Applications: Virtual Nursing Academy of American Psychiatric Nurses Association Champions for Smoking Cessation
Application deadline: December 16, 2013
Although the prevalence of tobacco use in the general population has decreased over the past several decades, the numbers of people living with psychiatric and/or substance use disorders that use tobacco remains alarmingly high. Since the creation of our Tobacco Dependence Council in 2008, APNA has fostered the development and dissemination of many resources to educate our workforce and assist psychiatric-mental health nurses in prioritizing and providing evidence-based tobacco dependence interventions with those they serve. In an effort to extend this work and further mobilize grass roots smoking cessation initiatives, we are again partnering with the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center to support innovative strategies aimed at decreasing tobacco use in this vulnerable population. Fashioned after the SAMHSA/SCLC 100 Pioneers for Smoking Cessation program, all APNA members are eligible to apply to be part of the new Virtual Nursing Academy of APNA Champions for Smoking Cessation. 12-15 applicants with the most promising strategies will receive an honorarium of $1,000 and complimentary registration to the APNA 28th Annual Conference, October 22-25, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 12-15 Champions will commit to participating in one of the orientation conference calls on January 23rd and 24th and at least 2 training webinars. Each Champion will also submit a brief final progress report at the end of 6 months. Applications must be received by 11:59pm on December 16, 2013.
Provide training and technical assistance to Champions to increase understanding and skills in delivering effective tobacco cessation strategies
Implement or enhance existing tobacco cessation services using evidence-based practices
Implement or improve upon tobacco-free environments

You must hold a current active APNA membership in order to apply.
Proposed activities cannot be ones that have already been completed.
Orientation conference calls will take place on January 23 & 24, 2014 (times to be determined). APNA Champions must participate in one of the scheduled calls.
Evaluation data will be collected at baseline (January 21) and at the conclusion of the project (included in the final progress report due on September 1).
All applications must be submitted via the online application form. Any submissions outside of this process will not be considered.
