Overview

It is well known that ongoing tobacco use is associated with poorer survival in patients with cancer. This committee works to provide lung cancer care providers with tools to reinforce tobacco assessment and enhance cessation support. From recommendations for global governments to toolkits for care providers, the Tobacco Control and Smoking Cessation Committee is active and engaged at all levels.

"We share with the patient the risks of continued smoking and the benefits of quitting, as well as the risks and benefits of different approved cessation medications that we could offer. We find out what may or may not have worked for them in the past."
