About the HealthCare Partnership

Since 1994, The University of Arizona HealthCare Partnership has certified thousands of health and human service professionals and community health advocates in evidence-based practices to encourage the prevention and treatment of nicotine addiction. Through educational programs that present intervention strategies in ways that are simple, practical, and easy to understand, the HealthCare Partnership supports change at the individual and systems levels.

In its certification programs and customized presentations, the HealthCare Partnership disseminates the recommendations of the US Public Health Service Clinical Practice Guideline, Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence, and the USDHHS Interagency Committee on Smoking and Health’s National Action Plan for Tobacco Cessation.

The HealthCare Partnership is part of The University of Arizona College of Science, Department of Psychology, and is solely funded through competitive grants, contracts and its educational programming.
