Asking the Right Questions- Clinicians & Tobacco Cessation in the Clinical Encounter

The AAP Richmond Center hosted two clinical practice trainings in 2014 titled 'Asking the Right Questions- Clinicians and Tobacco Cessation in the Clinical Encounter'. These trainings were designed to help clinicians improve how they have discussions about tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure with patients and families in the pediatric practice setting. These trainings educated child health care clinicians about messages, tools, and counseling protocols to screen and counsel patients and families about cessation and secondhand smoke exposure during pediatric clinical encounters. Clinicians were taught how to effectively integrate these practices into existing practice systems. Applicants were encouraged to attend the training in pairs of a pediatrician and another member of the practice team.
