Building Local Capacity for Smoking Cessation Support: A Documentation of Practice Report

 

Building local capacity to help people quit smoking is as an important strategy to decrease smoking rates in Ontario (SFO-SAC, 2010). Local public health units (PHUs) can help to lead these efforts by facilitating service providers (SPs) such as dentists, community health centre workers and pharmacists, to deliver quit smoking supports to their clients. They can also bring local partners together to better coordinate the services within their communities.

This Documentation of Practice study was conducted to capture the innovative work that PHUs have been involved with to build local capacity for cessation across four jurisdictions.
