You don’t do all the work!
A systems approach to tobacco cessation shares the responsibility among office staff.
- Prompts are provided to remind staff to document and intervene with each patient that smokes.
- The practice decides who is responsible for each step.
- Counseling can be provided effectively through the NYS Smokers’ Quitline.
The Quitline’s Fax to Quit program assures that your patient receives: brief counseling, a nicotine replacement therapy starter kit if eligible; and resource materials. The Quitline will fax a progress note back to your office.
NC Tobacco Cessation Center will make it as easy as possible to transform your current operating system into a system that works for you and your tobacco using patient.
