Tobacco use is responsible for around 30% of cancer deaths in France. Over two thirds of smoker patients continue despite the therapeutic management of their cancer, especially when cancer is not associated with tobacco. The impact of smoking on quality of care for patients is actually not enough considered. The French National Cancer Institute has developed tools that highlight the importance of tobacco cessation to improve the quality of patient care and could help them in their practices to apprehend smoking cessation with their patients. It is important that a communication with the patient takes place at the beginning of the treatment to impact the smoking behavior. All oncology health professionals should deliver a clearly and personalized cessation advice in the light of scientific data and ensure that smoking cessation help will be offered to the patient.
