  1. Tobacco prevention in hospitals: long-term follow-up of a smoking control programme.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper presents the results of a smoking control programme carried out in Sant Jaume i Santa Magdalena Hospital in Mataro (Barcelona, Spain) involving the entire hospital staff.

    The general objectives of the programme were: 1) to reduce tobacco consumption among hospital staff and 2) to create an awareness of their exemplary role as health professionals.

    In order to achieve these aims, different activities were carried out:

    • lectures on the consequences of smoking;

    • restrictions on smoking in hospital areas;

    • and smoking cessation help for those who wished to give up smoking.

    To measure the effectiveness of the intervention, a survey of smoking habits and attitudes among the hospital staff was conducted before the start of the programme in 1986 and repeated two and a half years later in 1989.
