Abstract

General practitioners are the first point of
contact for patients seeking health advice
as more than 80% of Australians consult
with a GP at least once a year.1 Evidence
shows that the GP can play a powerful role
in assisting smokers to quit.1–4
The Smoking cessation guidelines for
Australian general practice were developed
by GPs and smoking cessation experts.5 We
report on an evaluation of the introduction
of the guidelines into practice.
