Abstract

Smoking is a significant public health concern in the United States, yet 50% of patients do not receive recommended tobacco use screening and counseling. This project compared smoking cessation rates in newly reimbursable nurse-led wellness visits with rates in physician-led visits. Although the findings were not statistically significant, they suggested that smoking cessation is at least equivalent in patients who attend nurse-led visits compared with physician-led visits and may be higher.
