Stroke clinicians are well placed to deliver smoking cessation brief advice to patients. A brief advice conversation helps patients access best practice smoking cessation care, and is quick and effective. Quit and Stroke Foundation have partnered to provide online training and resources to stroke clinicians, assisting them to support patients to stop smoking and improve stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) outcomes.
Quit and Stroke Foundation have partnered to deliver a webinar for stroke clinicians on embedding best practice smoking cessation care in stroke settings.
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.
