Updating the AHCPR Clinical Practice Guideline on Smoking Cessation

Over the past few years, research advances have been made in a number of areas related to smoking cessation, including new pharmacotherapies (e.g., new nicotine replacement products), the use of stage-based intervention, and treatments that target selected, high-risk populations (such as adolescents and pregnant women). The existing Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) Smoking Cessation Guideline summarizes findings published through the end of 1994 and does not include this important new information. The purpose of this project is for the Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention to reconvene the Smoking Cessation Panel (which developed the AHCPR Guideline) to review areas in which there has been substantial new research and revise the existing Guideline. The updated Guideline will provide clinicians with a current, evidence-based set of treatment guidelines.
