Additional Information

Official title Implementing Evidence-Based Tobacco Cessation Strategies in Oncology Clinics
Principal investigator Erin Sutfin
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess oncology providers' self-reported need for training on evidence-based tobacco cessation strategies and assess their level of interest in future training on evidence-based tobacco cessation strategies. II. To test the feasibility of the implementation of evidence-based tobacco cessation strategies in community oncology clinics. III. To test the feasibility of surveying community oncology patients after a clinic visit to assess provider behavior regarding screening and brief intervention for tobacco use. OUTLINE: Patients complete a survey over approximately 10-15 minutes related to their provider's cessation advice and assistance with quitting. After completion of study, patients are followed up at 1 month.
