How To Refer

“Taking just a few minutes to talk to your patients about smoking can double the odds of them successfully quitting.” – Former Surgeon General Regina Benjamin, M.D.

How to Refer Throughout the Quitting Journey

Positive reinforcement and provider referrals are critical for all patients who use tobacco.

  • All Patients
    • Refer them to 802quits.org to explore quitting their own way.
    • If you have materials handy, give them an 802quits rack card.
    • Make a note to ask them about tobacco use at their next appointment.
  • Short on time with a patient who’s ready to quit?

Let your patients know that 802Quits offers free quit medications and cessation support in-person, by phone or online.
