Tobacco Cessation Resources for Healthcare Providers
Health care professionals who help their patients quit smoking greatly increase the likelihood they’ll achieve long-term success. When patients visit, they’re presented with an opportunity for interventions and cessation guidance.
If your patients want to quit, refer them to the Florida Department of Health’s free and evidence-based resources. With Tobacco Free Florida’s expanded Quit Your Way program, your patients can access free tools, including a 2-Week Starter Kit of nicotine replacement patches, Text2Quit, Email Tips and a Quit Guide. They can choose as many as they need or use them in addition to Phone, Group and Web Quit services, which have already helped more than 159,000 Floridians successfully quit.
