Abstract:
Problem: Cigarette smoking is the most prevalent health risk behavior in the United States, with tobacco-related disease and disability accounting for $50 billion in medical expenditures and 400,000 deaths annually. Carilion Health System in Virginia did not have a systematic protocol for providing education on smoking cessation. Purpose: Through collaboration between the Pulmonary CNS, Cardiac CNS, Cardiac Rehab nurses and Respiratory Therapy practitioners a program for smoking cessation was developed for Carilion Health System. Significance/Justification: Seventy percent of current smokers want to quit smoking, but lack the information for success. Research has shown that smoking cessation counseling lasting as little as ten minutes can significantly increase smoking cessation rates. In addition, recent studies have shown that utilizing a systematic protocol for identifying and addressing tobacco use facilities delivery of smoking cessation interventions. Practice Innovation/Methods: Hospitalized patients are referred to the program by nurses, physicians, or other health care workers, as well as self-referral. Registered Nurses or Respiratory Therapists, who are trained interventionists, assess the level of nicotine dependence and behavioral activities associated with the use of tobacco. Based on the assessments, the following information is discussed, the smoker's motivation to quit, review personal risk factors, smoking triggers/ behaviors, identification of an individual to provide support, quit date, and other pertinent information. The patient is then assisted in selection of a method for nicotine cessation. Written materials are provided and tailored to each patient who may then view a closed circuit television program. Follow-up telephone counseling occurs after discharge. Total time investment is approximately 30 minutes per patient. Outcomes/Evaluation: Since this program started in 2001, over 100 patients have received the intervention. Of the patients we have been able to follow, twenty-seven percent continue to abstain from tobacco one month following the session. Implications for Nursing Practice: This system change demonstrates how to create and implement a system-wide smoking cessation program based on research, the importance of involving different disciplines in change, and developing partnerships within a health system.
