Better Help for Smokers to Quit

The Better Help for Smokers to Quit health target is designed to ensure health professionals, especially doctors, nurses and midwifes, routinely screen for tobacco use and then to offer smokers help to quit. The health target has been split to cover the following areas: 

Secondary - 95 percent of hospitalised patients who smoke and are seen by a health practitioner in public hospitals are offered brief advice and support to quit smoking.

Primary Care - 90 percent of enrolled patients who smoke and are seen by a health practitioner in general practice are offered brief advice and support to quit smoking.

Maternity - 90 percent of pregnant women (who identify as smokers at the time of confirmation of pregnancy in general practice or booking with Lead Maternity Carer) are offered advice and support to quit.
