A Decade of Experience Promoting the Clinical Treatment of Tobacco Dependence in Wisconsin
Redmond LA, Adsit R, Kobinsky KH, Theobald W, Fiore MC. Wisconsin Medical Journal. 2010;109(2):71-78.

This paper describes the strategies, outcomes, and impacts of the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) on the clinical treatment of tobacco dependence in Wisconsin. The program undertook five strategies to accomplish its goals, including providing telephone counseling services to all state residents and integrating it with routine medical services. In the 10 years since the Program was initiated, more Wisconsin smokers are making quit attempts, insurance coverage for cessation counseling and medications has gone up, more clinicians are discussing quitting options with their patients, and the Wisconsin Tobacco Quit Line has been integrated into routine primary care. In addition, smoking rates in Wisconsin have fallen by almost 20%, from 24% of adults in 2000 to less than 20% in 2009.
