This presentation addresses one of the primary health issues facing the profession of nursing today: tobacco use. While there are at least four places a nurse could look to explore how nursing is engaged with tobacco use issues, this presentation will cover one: a review of published literature related to nursing and tobacco use. The use of tobacco is recognized as a leading cause of preventable disabilities and premature death. The World Health Organization estimated that in the year 2000 about 4 million people died as a result of tobacco related illness. Health risks associated with the use of tobacco and exposure to tobacco smoke are well documented with the key areas including circulatory, respiratory and cancer related illnesses. However, 1.1 billion people in our world use tobacco. Health research and subsequent efforts to influence people's use of tobacco has been extensive and results have varied. Clearly, today internationally, tobacco use is easily framed as a primary health concern. Framing tobacco use as a primary health concern logically supports the nursing profession in engaging in this health issue. To explore nurses' engagement with this health issue there are several places to consider. First, academic literature reveals how nursing scientists are addressing tobacco use and subsequent knowledge development. Second, policy and document development by professional nursing bodies provides insight into how knowledge and the political will concerning tobacco use are being integrated into our profession. Third, policy development and educational opportunities supported by nursing and health care administration provides insight into another level of research uptake. Fourth, perception and actions of direct client care nurses reveals how the majority of nurses are engaging with tobacco use issues and provides valuable insight into actions either taken by or required of the three other places. Each of these four spaces is where research and practice either interplay or disassociate. Consideration of each of these places is part of a larger study. The focus of this presentation will be the review of academic literature published in the last five years. The resurgence of interest, in nursing's engagement with tobacco use, by the scientific community has adopted several key framing strategies including: tobacco use amongst nurses, tobacco use amongst student nurses, nurses' perceptions and actions associated with tobacco use, clinical trial studies of proposed nursing interventions related to smoking cessation, and nursing education content concerning tobacco use issues. Each strategy will be discussed separately. This presentation will conclude with suggestions for further exploration into this primary health issue and subsequent implications for nursing research and practice.
