Tobacco use is a serious health issue for all family members. Child healthcare clinicians are in a unique and important position to address smoking because of the regular, multiple contacts with families and the harmful health consequences to their patients. The CEASE Module was developed to help child healthcare clinicians tailor their office setting to address family tobacco use in a routine and effective manner.
CEASE was developed after extensive research in the adult and child healthcare settings, based on the current best practices for the adult setting. The CEASE Module is currently being scientifically evaluated by a team of tobacco control experts, pediatricians, public health professionals, and dissemination specialists.
