Abstract:
Tobacco use continues to be the number one risk factor in cardiovascular diseases as well as many major health problems. As clinical nurse specialists, our role is one of facilitating and influencing the "Spheres of Influence" to create best practices, improved outcomes, and overall quality care for our patients and their families. This presentation will address the CNS role in the creation of, rationale for, presentation to multidisciplinary professionals, and initiation of a "Tobacco Use Intervention Protocol". A protocol as political and sensitive as one on tobacco has presented many challenges. This RN initiated protocol is two-fold: To address both behavioral intervention as well as medication intervention for the patient's comfort and abstinence from tobacco use, immediately after the patient's admission to hospital. This protocol is to promote comfort, begin tobacco cessation, and, hopefully, start the patient on life-long abstinence from tobacco products.
