Module 7: Treatment of Tobacco Use Disorder in Primary Care
Description
Tobacco use disorder is still a major cause of preventable death that affects individuals with mental illness or other addictions to a great degree. Treatments are effective yet underutilized. Practice guidelines recommend that all smokers trying to quit should use pharmacotherapy as a first-line treatment. However, reviews suggest that use is much less; fewer than one out of every 3 smokers who try to quit uses an FDA-approved smoking cessation medication. Tobacco withdrawal causes clinically significant symptoms of agitation, anxiety, restlessness, and impaired concentration. Medications are effective in reducing these withdrawal symptoms and at least doubling the smoker’s chance of success in quitting smoking. Pharmacotherapy may be even more important in smokers with mental illness or other addictions as they have higher levels of dependence than other smokers. This educational activity will review updates in evidence based treatments for tobacco use disorder.
Target Audience
Physicians, nurses, and healthcare teams who are treating patients with substance use disorder (SUD).
Presenters
