Smoking Cessation

Ambulatory Care Network’s Tobacco Cessation Services (TCS) facilitates clinician adoption of tobacco cessation. TCS staff members include patient navigators and nurse practitioners who are solely dedicated to TCS or are content experts who integrate TCS into their primary care roles. The TCS program also engaged in provider and community education activities in 2017, including in-person and online learning modules and webinars for NYP employees and NYP PPS members; participation in community health fairs; smoking cessation outreach for adult ACN patients and TCS counseling for providers; and sponsorship of an annual Certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist training for hospitals and community-based organizations. Nearly 3,000 patients have visited with or been engaged by TCS nurse practitioners.
