Crime Scene Evidence ► Annually 430,000 people die from tobacco-related diseases ► Healthy People 2010’s goal is for 85% of healthcare providers to routinely advise about cessation ► Nurses can focus efforts in 2 directions: the 26% of the population that use tobacco & also in primary prevention
How can this crime be prevented? ► Motivate high-risk groups ► Minimal efforts improve long-term quit rates by 5-10% ► Consistent, persistent approach ► Multiple, personalized interventions
How can nurses prevent the crime? ► Nurse-led tobacco cessation interventions increase success by 50% ► “If the 2.2 million nurses in the US each helped 1 person/yr quit, nurses would triple the US quit rate (Tobacco free nurses, 2002)
A crime-free society takes time ► Cessation requires many attempts ► The process is different for each person ► Quitting occurs in stages and nurses need to intervene at each stage
Tampered Evidence (myths) ► Smokers don’t want to quit. Fact: Seventy to eighty percent of smokers do want to quit but are unable to do so without assistance. ► ► Nurses don’t have enough time to provide smoking cessation advice. Fact: A brief smoking intervention (< 3 minutes) can increase quit rates. ► ► Nurses who smoke can’t be helpful to patients using tobacco. Fact: No one understands the difficulty of quitting more than a person who has recently attempted quitting.
