New guidance shows how to ACT on youth tobacco cessation

August 1, 2021

Youth Tobacco Cessation: Considerations for Clinicians is a brief, practical guide designed to support tobacco use screening and behavioral and pharmacological support to help youths quit.

A three-step Ask-Counsel-Treat (ACT) model guides clinical interactions around cessation. A printable flow chart describes how using ACT in just two to three minutes can be a meaningful intervention with minimal workflow disruption and includes use of the electronic health record to identify and address tobacco use.

The guide also includes a graphic illustration of commercial tobacco products, including electronic, combustible and non-combustible tobacco products. Find details at www.aap.org/youthcessation.
