Because 44 million Americans still smoke,allcliniciansinevitably encounter smoking patients in their practices. However, many clinicians don't talk with their patients about smoking for a variety of reasons.
There are a number of free and effectively proven tools you can easily refer to patients to help them quick the habit, such as smoking cessation quit-lines and online cessation links. It takes less than one minute to refer patients to these resources and it may be the most effective thing you can do to save their life. It's easy, free and painless.
