This study evaluated a nurse-managed smoking cessation program for smokers hospitalized for a variety of conditions.
Hospitalized patients who smoked prior to hospitalization and who were motivated to quit (n=660) were randomized to intervention or usual-care groups and followed for the next year.
The intervention included a meeting with the nurse-care manager ; the use of a videotape, workbook, relaxation audiotape, and nicotine replacement therapy ; and nurse-initiated phone contacts after discharge.
The 12-month confirmed cessation rates were 21% and 31% for, respectively, the usual-care and intervention groups (odds ratio=1.7 ; 95% confidence interval=1.1,2.3).
A nurse-managed smoking cessation intervention can significantly increase cessation rates for hospitalized patients.
