Ask, Advise, Refer: Brief Intervention Model

Ask, Advise, Refer (AAR) is the CDC’s evidence-based brief intervention model. This free training will assist providers and professionals in quickly and effectively implementing a dialogue about tobacco use and cessation among their patients. Providers will gain information on the integration of the model into existing office routine, patient resources and fax-to-quit referral forms for MQC for Families and the New Jersey Quitline. MQC for Families offers both on-site and online training to those interested in receiving AAR training. 

On-Site and Live Online Training Options

MQC for Families offers free, on-site and live online training options to those interested in bringing instructors to their facility. Trainings can be customized to meet each individual organization’s needs and training materials are provided. This one hour training provides the opportunity for 1 CEU for Community Health Worker (CHES) Continuing Education Credit.
