Every nurse can deliver brief stop smoking interventions to every patient

  • In their own style
  • Tailoring the service for each patient
  • Without compromising the integrity of the evidence-based ABC guidelines.

Every nurse is different:

  • personality
  • communication style
  • age group
  • area of practice –rural vs. urban
  • specialty and work experience
  • ethnicity
  • gender.

Every patient is different:

  • ethnicity
  • presenting health issues
  • smoking history
  • mental health status
  • life stage – pregnant, parent, student etc.
