The tobacco cessation program (TCP) is a comprehensive program to promote, monitor, and evaluate tobacco cessation interventions in the Smoke-free Hospitals. The Catalan Network provides hospitals member’s with the resources needed to implement tobacco cessation programs such as education, tobacco therapy, and a web-based software. The web-based software is managed through the Internet and aimed to register, monitor, and control the inventions of the program in each hospital, facilitating the centralized and supervision of data.
Hospitals interested in implementing the TCP send a detailed proposal detailing the implementation process, available resources, flow paths and available personnel. The feasibility of the program according to these resources is studied beforehand by the coordination of the Network.
Once the program is approved, health professionals of each center are trained on both tobacco cessation interventions and in the managing of the software. Afterwards, the educational material such as motivational cessation leaflets and free pharmacological treatments are distributed.
