Motivational Interviewing for Nurses' Smoking Cessation

2017-07-18 10:23:22 | BioPortfolio


This study's objective was to test the efficacy, acceptability and feasibility of a motivational interviewing (MI) based smoking cessation intervention with nurses.


Despite the important role that health professionals have in reducing tobacco use, many have a smoking habit themselves. The prevalence of smoking is particularly high among nurses. A smoking cessation intervention for nurses who smoked, based on MI, was designed and evaluated following the UK Medical Research Council's (MRC) framework for complex interventions.
