Doctors Discussing Smoking Cessation Less

July 23, 2012   U.S. physicians are not discussing smoking cessation with their patients as often as they did just a few years ago, health officials found. Judy Kruger, Lauren Shaw, Jennifer Kahende, all of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta and colleagues analyzed data from the 2000, 2005 and 2010 Cancer Control Supplement of the National Health Interview Survey. The researchers said they limited their study participants to current smokers who had seen a healthcare provider in the past 12 months. Smokers were asked, “In the past 12 months, has a medical doctor or other health professional advised you to quit smoking or quit using other kinds of tobacco?”
