Development of the Region of Waterloo's Minimal Contact Intervention for Tobacco Cessation Policy

 

In 2007 – 2008, Region of Waterloo Public Health (ROWPH) developed and implemented the Minimal Contact Intervention for Tobacco Cessation policy. This requires that all public health staff involved in client assessment, either in person or by telephone, screen for and document tobacco use with their clients using the 4 “A”s (Ask, Advise, Assist, Arrange) protocol. The Documentation of Practice, “Development of the Region of Waterloo’s Minimal Contact Intervention for Tobacco Cessation policy: Key success factors and lessons learned from practice” provides a detailed description of the steps taken to develop, implement and evaluate this policy.

An overview of this documentation of practice was presented in a webinar on July 7, 2011.
