Kruger J, Shaw L, Kahende J, Frank E. Preventing Chronic Disease. 2012;9.
This study used data from the 2000, 2005, and 2010 Cancer Control Supplement of the National Health Interview Survey to examine changes in the number of adults who received advice to quit smoking from their health care providers. The proportion of adults receiving such advice declined over time, from 53.3% in 2000 and 58.9% in 2005 to 50.7% in 2010. The authors conclude that health care providers should increase their efforts to advise smokers to quit.
