posted by johnmcmenamin on 7 March 2015

This attachment is a powerpoint collection of slides that include some of the evidence and information that relates to the value of the Tobacco target and ABC Smoking management within primary care. Other information is available in the Tobacco Control Data Repository at

The slides provide background information supporting these key messages:

  • Smoking impacts on health at all ages
  • Quitting smoking improves health at all ages
  • Most smokers want to quit and most try at least annually
  • Asking at all contact points identifies those wanting to quit
  • Brief advice works and cessation supports works better

 These slides are available for use in presentations. More detailed information behind each slide is available if required.
