Symposium, April 1, 2016 Zurich / Switzerland

The highly successful 1st ENSH-Global Symposium was hosted by ENSH Switzerland. In all 18 experts attended from 7 ENSH-Global member networks (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Germany, Ireland and Switzerland). 

The symposium programme offered a mix of workshops and presentations which allowed participants an opportunity to exchange ideas and take away concrete proven examples of good practice. In this way good practice and innovate ideas hopefully will be shared with colleagues in their own tobacco-free networks.

The maim themes were on "how to reach tobacco users" in order to inform and motivate them to attend tobacco cessation services and "how to creative" so that the individual cessation needs are meet so that the quit attempt is a positive one.

The importance of organisation, structure and quality were addressed as critical aspects for tobacco cessation development, growth and sustainability. And the final session, a "World cafe" considered the topic of the employee - as a service user, as a service provider and as an employer. 

A summary report presentation is available for download and the good practice presentations are available along with relevant website links.
