Reaching priority populations who experience barriers to smoking cessation supports: A DoP

 


Populations with low socioeconomic status (SES) bear a disproportionate share of the health consequences of tobacco use and are among the populations that are least likely to quit using tobacco. Increasing access to cessation supports and motivating individuals within these populations to make a quit attempt is critical to reducing health inequities. Approaches that address the specific needs of a priority population and create low barrier, tailored cessation support services are recommended.

This documentation of practice (DoP) study documents innovative public health unit practices in terms of reaching priority populations with inequitable barriers to accessing cessation supports to highlight what has worked for whom and in what circumstances.

In the webinar held on June 27, 2016, presenters from three Ontario Public Health Units described the innovative approaches they to successfully enable and motivate individuals within low SES priority populations to access cessation supports.

Presenters included:

• Theresa Chambers, Public Health Nurse, Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit
• Marie Chaves, Health Promotor, Lambton Public Health
• Brian Hyndman, PhD Candidate, School of Public Health and Health Systems, University of Waterloo
• David Lorenzo, Manager, Niagara Region Public Health Department 


Please note that the full report includes the two page summary and the individual case reports.
