Indiana Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Awards Grant to Clarian Tobacco Control Center
Date:8/29/2008

Health Department advocating the new treatment Guideline:

Indiana ranks sixth among all states for adult smoking, with more than 1 million smokers estimated statewide. Sneegas strongly believes that Hoosiers want to quit smoking. Increased calls to the free Indiana Tobacco Quitline (1-800-QUIT-NOW) have increased in the past year; however, patients need support. Sneegas says health care providers are perfectly positioned to reach additional Hoosiers who want to quit smoking and provide them the necessary tools in order to be successful.

"Identifying smokers and providing them with brief advice and help with quitting in clinical practice are both very effective and cost effective," Deborah Hudson, program manager, CTCC, states. "Tobacco cessation is among the top three highest priority and cost-effective preventive services. As a healthcare professional, I found this to be true very early in my practice as a respiratory therapist. While we are asking about smoking status, national benchmarks show there is much room for improvement in delivering cessation assistance. The Community Intervention Trial for Smoking Cessation (COMMIT) showed that 75 percent of people were being asked about use, 49 percent advised to quit, and only 25 percent being offered assistance, like medications. When more than 60 percent of our smokers want to quit, we as health professionals need to be providing the means to assist them. It has become clear over the last decade that providing smoking cessation counseling may be similar to that of annual colon cancer screening, annual flu vaccinations, mammograms and cholesterol screening. This is why the Clarian Tobacco Control Center has launched an effort to assist healthcare providers in integrating evidence-based components that will allow them to provide brief cessation intervention."

CTCC will use the ITPC grant to ensure that Hoosier patients that smoke are treated for their disease, alongside any additional health issues
