Description

The Clinical Guidelines for the Management of Nicotine Dependent Inpatients form a part of the DHF Tobacco Smoking Cessation Support Framework Guidelines. They have been developed to give clear direction in the management of nicotine dependent inpatients for DHF medical, nursing and allied health staff. These guidelines are to be used by medical and nursing staff in hospitals, and while there is an emphasis on inpatients, these guidelines can be used as a guide in other settings, for example in remote community health centres (clinics).
These Guidelines have a strong alignment to the clinical guidelines developed and tested in other jurisdictions, and unless otherwise stated, have been derived from the North Coast Area Health Service, Clinical Guidelines of the Management of Nicotine Dependent Inpatients and the Western Australian Department of Health Clinical Guidelines and
Procedures for the Management of Nicotine Dependent Inpatients.
