Creating Smoke-free Hospitals in Ontario: A documentation of practice study

 

Ontario’s hospitals are key partners in tobacco control. The development of comprehensive smoke-free hospital policies which include 100% smoke-free grounds and cessation supports for patients and employees are one way that hospitals can join the efforts to reduce tobacco-use. The Propel Centre for Population Health Research, in collaboration with PTCC, conducted a documentation of practice (DoP) on smoke-free hospital policies. Specifically, using a multiple-case design, this DoP study investigated how hospitals, in collaboration with public health practitioners, developed, implemented and integrated policies into practice. Three hospitals with comprehensive smoke-free hospital policies– North Bay Regional Health Centre, Ross Memorial Hospital and Sault Area Hospital – were selected for inclusion in this study.
