Challenge Group training materials

The Challenge Group has produced a number of simple materials to serve as aids to local training for those involved in smoking in pregnancy care pathways.

These consist of three infographics, a brief reference guide and an animated video which will help specialists in the complex task of guiding pregnant smokers to a successful quit attempt. These materials are all free to use and have been produced in collaboration between Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) and Public Health England.
