Clinician's practices and perspectives regarding tobacco cessation in a teaching hospital
Dr. Shishir Kumar
Chewing tobacco is a type of smokeless tobacco product consumed by placing a portion of the tobacco between the cheek and gum or upper lip teeth and chewing. The study has planned to study the physician’s practices and their standpoint on this significant but preventable health hazard. Complete ban on tobacco is not possible. Thus behavioural changes play a very important role into bacon cessation. It has been clinically proven that smoking is a chronic relapsing disorder. Thus it requires repeated and regular assistance. Tobacco cessation programs not only protect health but also have monetary benefits, as money spent on buying tobacco products, as well as investing in treatment interventions at later stage is saved. Physicians are the key stake holders to help patients quit smoking.
