  • Alternative Title:
    Quick reference guide for smol(ing cessation specialists
  • Description:
    The Clinical Practice Guideline on which this Quick Reference Guide for Smoking Cessation Specialists is based was developed by an interdiscipHnary, private-sector panel comprising health care professionals and consumer repre- sentatives sponsored by the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The panel employed an explicit, science-based methodology along with expert clinical judgment to develop specific statements on smoking cessation interventions. Extensive literature searches were conducted and critical reviews and syntheses were used to evaluate empirical evidence and significant out-comes. Once the guideline was written, the panel conducted a peer review to evaluate the validity, reliability, and utility of the guideline in clinical practice. This Quick Reference Guide for Smoking Cessation Specialists presents a clinical strategy for applying the statements and recommendations from the Clinical Practice Guideline. The latter provides a description of the guideline development process, thorough analysis and discussion of the available research, critical evaluation of the assumptions and knowledge of the field, more complete information for health care decision making, and references. Decisions to adopt particular recommendations from either publication must be made by practitioners in light of available resources and circumstances presented by the individual patient.
