5 A’s Intervention to Increase Smoking Cessation in Primary Care
MetadataShow full item record
Tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of death in US adults. Healthcare providers have frequent contacts with their patients yearly in primary care clinics and are well positioned to identify patients who smoke and to assist with smoking cessation. The Agency for Healthcare Research recommends a comprehensive smoking cessation intervention, the “5 A’s,”; to ask, advise, assess, assist, and arrange smoking cessation interventions for patients who smoke (Grandes, Cortada, & Arrazola, 2018). This evidence-based project shows the effectiveness of the 5 A’s comprehensive smoking cessation intervention in every day routine consultation in primary care to increase smoking cessation.
