[Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine college/university healthcare providers' and students' perspectives of culturally competent smoking cessation counseling practices.  Aims included: describe the experiences, barriers and student perceptions of culturally competent smoking cessation counseling in college health services; describe healthcare providers' perceptions of culturally competent counseling and identify their counseling strategies and differences in smoking cessation counseling practices when addressing smoking behaviors of  multi-cultural students. Methods: Qualitative and quantitative methodology were used.  A series of  eight focus groups were planned with 4 groups of healthcare providers and 4 groups of students. Quantitative survey data supplemented the qualitative approach.  Students completed the College Tobacco Survey that contained demographics and questions related to smoking behavior.  Healthcare providers completed the College/University Healthcare Provider Smoking Cessation Counseling Demographic Survey. Results: Healthcare Providers lacked the knowledge, experience and resources to provide culturally competent smoking cessation counseling.  They stressed that it was difficult to address different cultures because college students belong to the college culture that extends to peers, social life and residence life.  Strategies used were not evidence based and varied with healthcare providers. Providers stressed they did not feel confident and wanted to learn more about smoking cessation counseling in order to  meet the needs of their students.  The majority of students did not go to the health services to discuss smoking cessation.  Students felt that healthcare providers lack the knowledge and experience to counsel.  Students stressed that discussing smoking cessation may lead to the stereotype of participating in other high risk behaviors.  Conclusion: There is a need for educational resources that would assist in providing culturally competent smoking cessation counseling.  The majority of students would like to have a resource in their college/university health services to address smoking.  Students stressed the need for respect and ongoing personalized care.
