This presentation will focus on the evaluation of the Brant County Health Unit Quit Clinic in achieving smoking cessation and provide a snapshot of public health unit one-on-one cessation support activity across Ontario. Information on the effectiveness of offering individual smoking cessation clinics in a public health setting will be presented and related to decision-making on investing local public health unit resources in these types of programs. This session also aims to initiate discussion on standardizing outcome measures across local public health units that continue to offer individual smoking cessation support.
