Educational Objectives

Following completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:

  • Deliver effective and efficient clinical tobacco interventions to patients using systematic approaches to encourage tobacco cessation.
  • Describe population-based trends of tobacco use among smokers with co-occurring mental health and/or substance use disorders, teens and pregnant smokers.
  • Identify the special circumstances for smokers with co-occurring mental health and/or substance use disorders, teens and pregnant women.

Statement of Need
A growing body of research indicates that healthcare providers do not systematically intervene with smokers to provide tobacco independence treatment. This is especially true with teens and smokers with mental illness and/or substance use disorders. With pregnant smokers, there is a need to sustain the quit postpartum. There are special considerations to take into account when helping teens, pregnant smokers, and smokers with behavioral health conditions to quit.
