Tobacco Cessation Intervention for People with Disabilities: Survey of Center for Independent Living Directors
Moorhouse, Michael D.; Pomeranz, Jamie L.; Barnett, Tracey E.; Yu, Nami S.; Curbow, Barbara A.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v54 n2 p118-121 Jan 2011
People with disabilities (PWD) are 50% more likely to smoke compared with the general population, yet interventions tailored to the needs of PWD remain limited. The authors surveyed directors from a leading disability service organization to assess their delivery of tobacco cessation interventions. Although tobacco cessation was identified as a high priority, directors reported that they are ill-equipped to deliver tobacco cessation interventions. To properly address the unique challenges that PWD face when quitting tobacco, disability sensitive cessation interventions are needed. (Contains 2 tables.)
