Health Care System-level Approaches for Improved Quit Rates

Presented by California Rural Indian Health Board
September 22, 2021
9 – 10 a.m. PDT


Ending nicotine addiction is hard but there are ways to make it easier on the person and on the health care team. Systematic integration of evidence-based cessation services improves quit rates in tribal and urban communities. Proven strategies (5A’s, team roles, EHR, medications, counseling options, staff education) and implementation and education tools will be shared to easily embed cessation support services throughout the entire health system.
