Cold Turkey Smoking Cessation Advice Reflects Poor Success Rate
(#1112654, Wednesday, October 26, 5:30 PM Eastern)

Clinicians frequently recommend patients stop smoking but do not always provide them with appropriate tools to ensure their success. Researchers from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston conducted a survey of 777 current and ex-smokers, asking questions about patient demographics, smoking status, smoking cessation attempts, physician recommendations regarding approaches, and methods used to stop smoking, as well as cessation treatments. Among current smokers, 66% were advised by a physician to stop smoking. A cold turkey approach was advised 19% of the time, while nicotine replacement therapy was advised 52% of the time, and medications were advised 40% of the time. Of those who received a recommendation to quit cold turkey, the success rate was less than 10% a year. Greater efforts may be required by clinicians to ensure patients receive appropriate evidence-based therapy for smoking cessation.

Fewer Hospitals Offering Smoking Cessation Programs
(#1119865, Tuesday, October 25, 3:00 PM Eastern)

The number of hospital-based smoking cessation programs available to the public has decreased. In 2011, researchers from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School/University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and St. Peter's University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey found a 50% decline in hospitals offering smoking cessation programs to the public compared with results of a prior survey conducted in 2000. Of the 28 hospitals contacted in 2000, researchers were able to reach 20 in 2011. Of those, only seven had smoking cessation programs available; only three of those programs were in-hospital. The others offered only toll-free quit line phone numbers. Overall, 35% of hospitals demonstrated easy access to their public smoking cessati
