On behalf of the U.S. Public Health Service Clinical Practice Guideline Panel and the Sociedad Española de Neumología y Cirugía Torácica, we are pleased to announce the release of Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence in Spanish.
This is the first time the entire PHS Guideline has been translated into Spanish. In past years, summaries were translated into Spanish.
There are four ways to access the Guideline in Spanish:
1. U.S. Surgeon General, http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/tobacco/
2. AHRQ, http://www.ahrq.gov/path/tobacco.htm
3. Sociedad Española de Neumología y Cirugía Torácica (SEPAR), http://www.separ.es/doc/publicaciones/tabaquismo/guia_tabaquismo_v_espanola.pdf
4. UW Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI), http://www.ctri.wisc.edu/Researchers/researchers_CPGupdate2008.htm
On the UW-CTRI site, you’ll also find additional Guideline and other information on tobacco treatment and dependence—collated for specific audiences, such as researchers, health-care providers, smokers, advocates, and employers. Visit www.ctri.wisc.edu.
