Smoking is a large cause of morbidity and mortality in the healthcare system. Many patients are interested in quitting smoking but have not found an effective strategy that works for them. There have been times when patients have been receptive to a discussion regarding medication assisted cessation but ultimately were not prescribed any medications from their provider. Despite the fact that it has been proven that pharmacotherapy increases the chances of smoking cessation. The goal of this community health project is to create a change within the healthcare system by providing evidenced based recommendations regarding pharmacologic treatment in smoking cessation for both providers and patients to ultimately decrease the burden of smoking within this community.
