Tobacco Cessation with Healthcare Providers
Treating tobacco dependence in your tobacco using patients can be one of their most important steps toward better health. As a healthcare provider, you play an important role in helping your tobacco using patients quit smoking. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, tobacco users are more likely to attempt quitting tobacco if a healthcare provider recommends quitting and refers the patient for cessation treatment. Encourage your patients to consider quitting tobacco by conducting a brief tobacco intervention and referring patient to the Illinois Tobacco Quitline.
