Smoking Cessation: Developing a Workable Program

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 34 million adults in the U.S. smoke, and 16 million have a serious illness attributable to their smoking habit. With nearly half a million U.S. deaths attributed to smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke annually, the CDC identifies smoking as the number one cause of preventable disease, disability, and death. This course provides an overview of the need for smoking cessation and components of a successful program. Working as an interprofessional team, helping patients navigate the behavioral stages of smoking cessation, and smoking cessation aids are also discussed. The goal of this smoking cessation educational program is to help respiratory therapists, pharmacists, dietitians/nutritionists, nurses, occupational therapists, and social workers work together to create a successful plan to help patients quit smoking.
