Given the serious health consequences of smoking, nurses need to be well-informed on how to help various client populations with smoking cessation.
Much recent research is focused upon effectiveness of various programs to enhance self-efficacy and self-management skills necessary to succeed in permanent smoking cessation.
This study used a model based on Orem's Self-Care Deficit Theory to examine specific variables of importance in smoking cessation using descriptors relevant to understanding self-care actions.
The model is used to examine the outcomes of a community-based smoking-cessation program.
Results indicate that 15% of the final sample quit smoking and 42% reduced smoking while participating in the program.
Additional findings are helpful in describing actions taken by subjects who were and were not successful in quitting.
