Only 31% of smokers trying to quit use any evidence-based treatment.
Health care providers can help raise the success rate of quitting by helping smokers access cessation therapies and resources, especially because they often care for patients at a time when they are seeking care for a smoking-related illness. These opportunities are crucial, and smoking cessations rates could be greatly increased if providers routinely used these opportunities to provide their patients with effective treatment.
