Beyond the Basics: Maximizing Chances for Smoking Cessation

Description

Smoking cessation medications show great results for long-term abstinence and reducing the risk of disease, disability, and death. But current labeling approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for smoking cessation medications is not sufficiently effective for a large number of quitters. Learn how to help your patients kick the habit through case studies featuring the most successful, innovative approaches. Plus, explore emerging evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of varenicline.

  3. Summarize the role of varenicline in the treatment of tobacco use and dependence and its associated safety and efficacy.
