High impact information on Tobacco Use Cessation

  • Patients filled out baseline and follow-up questionnaires relating to lifestyle modifications, including statin utilization, diet, exercise, tobacco cessation and vitamin/antioxidant utilization [1].
  • The results indicated tobacco cessation caused small and transient effects on plasma hormone levels which were not significantly influenced by nicotine replacement and were not related to other signs of withdrawal [2].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Anti-tobacco media campaigns are a vital component of the National Action Plan for Tobacco Cessation [3].
  • American College of Preventive Medicine practice policy. Tobacco-cessation patient counseling [4].
  • RESULTS: Importance of PSA screening and tobacco cessation counseling were weakly associated with patients' receipt of preventive care; no association between attitudes and other services was observed [5].

Biological context of Tobacco Use Cessation

  • RESULTS: Men were less likely than women to have received blood pressure screening (aOR 0.44;0.40-0.50), cholesterol screening (aOR 0.72;0.65-0.79), tobacco cessation counseling (aOR 0.66;0.55-0.78), and checkups (aOR 0.53;0.49-0.57) [11].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Tobacco Use Cessation

  • After we developed and evaluated an interactive CD-ROM tobacco cessation training program, we evaluated the effect of using the program on the knowledge level and attitudes of forty-seven third-year dental students and thirty dental hygiene students and also obtained their opinions of program quality and utility [15].
