TSET Release

Oklahoma’s Hospitals Helping Patients Quit program provides more than 50 hospitals with physician resources from the Oklahoma Tobacco Helpline to help with patient referrals. This TSET-funded program was featured in the "CDC’s Best Practices User Guides for Cessation in Tobacco Prevention and Control."

The guide offers program staff and partners information on how to promote health systems change, improve insurance coverage for cessation treatment and support state quitlines. "Encouraging and helping tobacco users to quit is the quickest approach to reducing tobacco-related disease, death, and healthcare costs," according to "Best Practices 2014."
