Counsel to Quit℠

In just 3 minutes, a health care provider can influence a smoker’s quit success.

Counsel to Quit℠ is Respiratory Health Association’s training program designed to help health care professionals advise their patients to quit smoking. Research shows that just 3-10 minutes of counseling from a health care provider can increase the likelihood of an individual’s success in quitting by 60%.

RHA’s Counsel to Quit℠ trainings provide health care professionals with an evidence-based brief clinical intervention for smoking cessation. You’ll receive information and skills to appropriately screen patients for tobacco use, implement strategies to advise cessation, and share opportunities to connect to local cessation referral options.
