USPHS Rx For Change Tobacco Cessation Training Program

Description

Creating a tobacco-free nation is one of the top priorities of the U.S. Surgeon General. It is still the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the U.S., yet an estimated 42 million adults continue to smoke. The good news is that more than two thirds want to quit, and about half report making a conscious effort to quit smoking in the previous year. This program provides the health professional and the clinical support staff the ability to refer tobacco users to appropriate resources to enable them to quit.
