Thursday, November 19 is the American Cancer Society's annual "Great American Smokeout," encouraging smokers to quit, even if it's only for one day. What better time than to round up a few key information resources on tobacco cessation?
- Smokers may find the American Cancer Society's website helpful, in particular its "Stay Away from Tobacco" section.
- Yale clinicians can refer to Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence: 2008 Update, a guideline from the US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
- For point of care reference, DynaMed offers a chapter on "Treatment for tobacco use," last updated October 30, 2015.
The DynaMed chapter offers patient education materials, as does ClinicalKey. Click the dropdown menu to the left of the search box to filter results in the "Patient Education" source type.
For help finding more evidence on tobacco and smoking cessation, you can always contact your department's librarian.
