Image Caption Ask-Advise-Connect (AAC) increases tobacco cessation treatment enrollment 29-fold compared to a control Ask-Advise-Refer (AAR) protocol.
Description Tobacco cessation substantially reduces the risk of cancer and other diseases, but evidence-based tobacco cessation treatments are currently underutilized. To address this problem, Wetter and colleagues developed and tested a proactive strategy called Ask-Advise-Connect, in which the electronic health record includes supports to assess the tobacco use status of every patient at every visit, provide advice to quit, and directly and electronically link interested tobacco users with the Quitline, which then proactively calls them within 48 hours. This system yielded markedly higher rates of treatment enrollment than other approaches and is now a CDC recommended "best practice."
