Alcohol and other drug (AOD) workers are a respected source of support. They are well placed to have smoking cessation brief advice conversations with their clients. Every conversation increases the chance of a client successfully quitting smoking.
An organisation-wide approach is needed to embed the Ask, Advise, Help (AAH) smoking cessation brief advice model into routine practice. The AAH model outlines how to deliver best practice smoking cessation care and can apply to all health, social service and community settings.
