The January take-home: with guest Dr Sharon Cox

In this episode, Dr Sharon Cox from University College London's Department of Behavioural Science joins the SSA's Rob Calder and Dr Carol-Ann Getty from the Addiction journal newsroom.

"We have this situation in the UK where, almost the more health and social needs you have the less likely your smoking is to be addressed, it’s seen by health practitioners as the last comfort or the last pleasure, so that’s something that my work really tries to tackle." Dr Sharon Cox

There is a feature on smoking cessation in mental health settings with Mary Yates, a smoking cessation lead for SLaM (South London and Maudsley NHS trust), one on Ketamine for alcohol use disorders and smoking cessation in addiction treatment both from the PhD: Addicted to Research team.
