Smoking Cessation@ Atikokan Family Health Team
A multidisciplinary smoking cessation program for all rostered patients to manage their own health by providing self-management supports and strategies. “Stop Smoking with FHT’s”, is a new smoking cessation program at the Atikokan Family Health Team. Lisa Campbell RN, a smoking cessation counsellor, will assess the patient’s smoking habits and health profile to determine the appropriate treatment, which may include nicotine replacement–patches, lozenges, gum and inhalers, as well as information and counselling support. Patients will qualify for up to 6 months of free nicotine replacement therapy.
The Family Health Team also assists patients released from hospital to remain smoke-free on discharge.
