Chest Physicians Launch Smoking Cessation Campaign

KEY POINT

With publication of a special report in the journal Chest and using materials developed by the Chest Foundation (www.chestnet.org/foundation/), members of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) are redoubling efforts to get their patients to stop smoking. Pharmacists—especially those whose practices focus on smoking cessation— should review the resources and educational materials available through these organizations.
