Implementing an Inpatient Smoking Cessation Program serves as a step-by-step manual for implementing a cost-effective tobacco cessation program for hospitalized patients. Based on the Staying Free program, which has evidenced among the highest cessation rates reported in the scientific literature, this book is the result of decades of research by the authors. Although the book reviews a tobacco cessation program, the process is applicable to most behavioral interventions in acute- or long-term care settings.

The book details the administrative responsibilities involved in designing, implementing, delivering, evaluating, and maintaining an inpatient tobacco cessation program. Its how-to approach focuses on the skills needed to: determine the work that needs to be done, select the appropriate interventions and providers, pay for and market the program, and create systems to keep the program alive. It provides algorithms for forecasting program enrollment and information on how to budget the program. Readers can then use this information as a blueprint for implementing their own program. A chapter on workflow provides a "virtual tour" of what to expect from the first 48 hours through the first year.

Written in an accessible style with insightful interviews with actual providers, Implementing an Inpatient Smoking Cessation Program:
*summarizes the literature on tobacco use, including the causal health effects and cost-effectiveness of cessation programs, to help readers build a case for a program;
*reviews the clinical guidelines and advantages that support an inpatient program; and
*provides tips on how to develop an effective program including insight into where the bottlenecks are likely to occur, and how to avoid them.

Implementing an Inpatient Smoking Cessation Program is intended for health care administrators, providers, researchers, educators, and students in health care administration, public health, community and health psychology, (behavioral) medicine, nursing, respiratory therapy, and rehabilitation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...The program designed by these researchers has yielded some of the highest short- and long-term cessation rates of any intervention... The American Heart Association has adopted this intervention, which also speaks to its validity, reliability, credibility, and success…some will buy this book simply because of who the authors are… I would recommend this book to health professionals involved with...smoking cessation… A book like this is long overdue."

Dana Busch, PsyD
University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute

"...A significant contribution to the field of smoking cessation and to the field of health psychology/behavioral medicine in general... To my knowledge, there are no books that present practical, "how-to" guidelines...of evidence-based interventions for smoking cessation... I wish I had the book two years ago... I would...recommend it to colleagues and students."

Belinda Borrelli, Ph.D.
Brown Medical School

"...This book…is an essential resource for those committed to conquering the single most preventable cause of death and disability in the United States, Canada, and worldwide."
