Abstract:
Approximately 85% of lung cancer is attributed to cigarette smoking. Smokers offered advice from a nurse were 50% more likely to quit compared with smokers not offered such advice. Very few programs are available to empower nurses to provide tobacco cessation education to patients, and few nurses have been exposed to such content in their nursing education. To describe a training program designed to educate bedside nurses in a community hospital with tools, knowledge and confidence necessary to provide patients with initial tobacco cessation interventions. Rx for Change: Clinician-Assisted Tobacco Cessation Program, designed for pharmacy schools as a 7-8 hour curriculum, was modified into a 3 hour program, incorporating both lecture (behavioral counseling and pharmacotherapy) and role-playing. The training program, taught by an oncology nurse and a pharmacist, is tailored for inpatient nurses and emphasizes the first four of 5A's (Ask, Advise, Assess, Assist, Arrange). A pilot study from one training session with 20 nurses showed that nurse attendees had good to very good ratings of overall ability to help patients quit tobacco and that 49% found the information to be completely new. At 6 months follow-up, all respondents had counseled or referred at least one patient to a quit smoking program. The pilot indicated that knowledge gains were not maintained over 6 months. Knowledge may be improved by adding some method of refresher information to help with knowledge retention. This course will be a mandatory inservice for all nurses at the community hospital; approximately three years will be required to educate all nurses. Nurses taking the course during 2007 will be invited to participate in a 1 year clinical trial evaluating the effect of a pretest on knowledge and attitudes. This presentation will describe the modified Rx for Change course.
