Recommendations for a Comprehensive Smoking Cessation Framework

This framework for a Comprehensive Smoking Cessation Strategy

looks at the health and financial impact of smoking in the Province

of Manitoba, the benefits of smoking cessation, existing cessation

resources, target populations and evidence based practices as they

apply to both clinical and non-medical approaches for smoking

cessation. It then recommends a plan for cessation that sets out

a direction with goals and objectives that will positively improve

overall health outcomes while making concerted efforts to reduce

health disparities.
