Tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of death in Canada. Yet although effective treatments exist, tobacco addiction remains vastly undertreated compared with other chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and asthma.

This second edition of Disease Interrupted addresses that gap in practice, offering the core knowledge and skills that health care and related professionals need to provide effective tobacco cessation services. It is designed for practitioners in various settings and across the spectrum of care, as well as for students in health care and related fields.

Based on the latest national best practice guidelines, the chapters describe evidence-based psychosocial and pharmacological approaches to cessation and examine interventions in various settings and for populations that are disproportionately affected by tobacco use.

Written by more than 50 experts in tobacco addiction, Disease Interrupted supports health care practitioners in delivering tobacco cessation interventions to help people overcome the harmful, often devastating, effects of tobacco use and addiction.
