2 Declining Rates of Smoking in NYC

3 The Role of Primary Care Providers in Tobacco Treatment Brief counseling intervention by health care providers has been shown to effectively promote smoking cessation However, providers face considerable pressure to address multiple patient care concerns during increasingly brief clinical visits Facilities with tobacco screening systems are associated with a 66% rate of clinician intervention Bronx BREATHES is available to help providers address these challenges (Fiore et al., 2008) (Davis et al. 1995; Cabana et al., 1999) (Fiore et al., 2008)

4 Efficacy of Tobacco Counseling Interventions Brief counseling 3-10 minutes Targets smokers who are willing (5 As), unwilling (5 Rs), and those who recently quit (relapse prevention) Intensive counseling Total clinician-client time > 30 minutes with at least 4 sessions Tend to be coordinated by tobacco dependence specialists Multiple clinician types (Cromwell et al., 1997; Fiore et al., 2008) Strong dose response between counseling intensity (time) and cessation success

5 Brief Counseling Intervention: The 5As (Fiore et al., 2008)

6 Motivational Intervention for Patients Not Ready to Quit: The 5Rs (Fiore et al., 2008)

7 The Utility of Performance Monitoring and Feedback Academic Detailing (educational office visits) are a promising way to change provider behaviors Combined strategies, namely individual instruction with peer review & feedback about performance, were among the most effective interventions for medical professionals: –Typically target drug prescribing behaviors –No clear association between number of visits and impact on practice change (O’Brien et al, 2006 – Cochrane Review)
