Description

Tobacco use is the leading preventable, behavioral cause of mobidity and mortality worldwide [1].  Use of tobacco products can significantly affect a persons health and wellbeing and impair their occupational readiness.  The American College of Cardiology 2018 ACC Expert Consensus Decision Pathway on Tobacco Cessation Treatment reported that, "Current evidence strongly supports combining pharmacotherapy with behavioral/psychosocial interventions as the most effective way to help smokers sustain abstinence" [2], and the American Psychological Association noted that, "when {tobacco users} try to quit without medication or counseling, 4 percent to 6 percent will succeed. But those who get face-to-face counseling, nicotine-replacement therapy and medication can quadruple that success rate" [3].  The aims of this program are to describe the state of tobacco control in one miltiary Service - the Air Force and provide behavioral health clinicans with evidence based tools to effectively assess and interevene in tobacco cessation programs.  The presenters will describe the current tobacco use treands among new Airmen and discuss use patterns as they pertain to possible treatments and policies.  The presenters will discuss how changes in current trends create new challenges for behavioral health clinicans in reducing the burden of tobacco use on readiness and the health of the force. Clinical best practices to increase engagment and tobacco cessation will be discussed.
