The researchers hypothesize that smoking cessation counseling improves with the implementation of a smoking status assessment data sheet in routine consults. This is a quality improvement study design to evaluate the impact of the implementation of a more formal smoking status evaluation in a resident/faculty driven outpatient clinic.
We hypothesize that smoking cessation counseling improves with the implementation of a smoking status assessment data sheet in routine consults. This is a quality improvement study design to evaluate the impact of the implementation of a more formal smoking status evaluation in a resident/faculty driven outpatient clinic. This will be an observational study in which differences in quality measures will be compared between baseline and re-measurement periods. Population target: 900 patients screened before and after the implementation of the QI intervention. Primary outcome: smoking status evaluation. Secondary Outcome: number of patients advised to quit, plan implementation for smoking cessation, smoking cessation program referrals, number of NRT and bupropion prescription.
