executive Summary Clinical Background

intrOduCtiOn And GOAlS


patients who use tobacco often represent a frustrating paradox for the chest physician and other healthcare providers. On the one hand, both physician and patient generally recognize the tremendous incentive to stop: tobacco dependence is a fatal disease. if not treated, tobacco dependence kills 50% who suffer from it. Moreover, very few remain untouched by the tremendous toll on health and the human suffering tobacco use wrecks upon family and friends. As many as 90% of tobacco-dependent people identify tobacco use as harmful and want to reduce or stop using it.(,) On the other hand, the majority of tobacco-dependent people also experience a visceral reluctance to stop smoking, making only very brief and infrequent attempts to stop. Attempts to stop smoking are frequently private, even covert, for fear of not being able to stop. few tobacco-dependent people seek a physician's advice on the best ways to use available over-the-counter medications and, in our experience, even fewer ask for help once their attempts begin to go awry. unfortunately, since becoming available over-the-counter, nicotine replacement therapy (nrt) has increasingly been used for too short a time and with too low a dose to be effective. More than 95% of selfdirected attempts to stop smoking will be doomed to fail without some form of additional help.

Physicians are in a powerful position to effect change. Most tobacco-dependent Smoke-free legislation/laws patients relate that physicians' advice was instrumental in aiding their Assessing dependence/dependence levels attempts to stop smoking. nearly 70% of tobacco-dependent patients see their physicians each year, and even brief, 60-second advice from a physician treatment plans/patient management can double to triple the spontaneous stop-smoking rates to 10%. One study even showed that brief, 60-second advice from a physician increased 1-year, continuous stop-smoking rates from 0.3% to 5.1% (a 17-fold increase). Yet, despite this enormous potential, physicians often cite very significant concerns when it comes to the practical realities of treating tobacco use within their office practice, such as limited time available for a typical visit, poor reimbursement for tobacco related services, limited knowledge and training specific to tobacco-dependence treatment, and a perceived ineffectiveness of therapy. Physicians and advance practice nurse practitioners generally have a working knowledge of treatment options and recognize the importance of patient intervention. However, patient measures of self-efficacy are generally poor, and relying on our patients' willpower and ineffective or misused over-the-counter aids is a Sisyphean endeavor. therefore, no tobacco-dependent patient should manage his or her tobacco use without the help of a physician or advance practice nurse practitioners.
