Smoking Assessment and Cessation Skills in the Inpatient Medicine Clerkship.
Hull, Alan L.; Kleinhenz, Mary Ellen
Teaching and Learning in Medicine, v2 n3 p157-60 1990
Analysis of 61 inpatient medical writeups by 23 third year medicine clerks found smoking history notations in 74 percent but quantification of exposure much less commonly. None detailed patient addiction or willingness to quit, or included smoking cessation in the patient plan. Students' smoking assessment and cessation skills are seen as poorly developed. (Author/MSE)
