Smoking Cessation Resource Centre
The Nursing in Practice Smoking Cessation Resource Centre aims to provide you with the latest developments in smoking cessation to aid with better communication with patients, supporting them to reduce smoking, and raising awareness of related conditions and the benefits of giving up.
Every year, around 114,000 smokers in the UK die from smoking-related causes. There are about 9.4m adults who smoke in Great Britain; this is around a sixth of the total UK population. Smoking-related illnesses are on the increase and have become a significant drain on NHS resources, with community and primary care professionals dedicating more of their time to managing and treating conditions caused by smoking.
