Don’t Let Your Patients Puff Their Lives Away

Comprehensive tobacco treatment is a critical component of the clinical care for individuals with or at risk for cardio/pulmonary disease, as well as peripheral arterial disease (PAD). As part of our partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) campaign, we are bringing you an eight-part series that will explore the latest approaches to tobacco treatment within the rehab setting. Join the fight and help your patients put down the light – check out this series today!
