Supporting smoking cessation: a guide for health professionals aims to be a practical, succinct and evidence-based resource that can be used by a wide range of health professionals working in a variety of contexts. As with the previous publications, it is based on research evidence and is informed by guidelines from other countries with similar population profiles. It seeks to link smoking cessation advice by health professionals to the materials and support services provided through the telephone quitlines operating in each state and territory. It also seeks to build on the momentum for cessation gained by public health interventions such as tax increases, restrictions on smoking in public places, changes to tobacco display and packaging and the social marketing of smoking cessation.
The ADA released the Policy Statement 2.2.4– Community Oral Health Promotion: Tobacco policy statement (2.2.4) in 2011, which outlines the associations position on oral health issues related to smoking. The document outlines the oral health issues related to smoking, and guiding principles and policy for ADA members.
