Who is conducting the IQI?

The IQI is a collaborative effort of Alere Wellbeing (formerly Free & Clear), the University of Washington (UW), American Cancer Society (ACS), Pfizer Medical Education Group, National Cancer Institute (NCI), and other partners. Alere Wellbeing is the largest provider of quitline services in the world.

Who should attend?

Representatives from health departments, ministries of health, and other government or health care organizations outside the US that have direct responsibility for developing and implementing national or regional tobacco control and treatment policies in their country are encouraged to attend.

Why is this training being offered?

Tobacco quitlines can be operationally complex and services may vary a great deal depending on the goals and objectives of the QL. This training will expose attendees to state-of-the-art QL processes and provide an interactive experience with experts who have operated quitlines for many years. The IQI will provide a unique opportunity to network with QL experts and peers from around the world with special attention to requirements of the WHO FCTC Article 14.
