Tobacco Cessation Guidelines for High Risk Populations

The ENSP recently published “Smoking Cessation Guidelines for High Risk Populations” are a result of scientific and evidence-based research conducted by working groups of health professionals and experts in tobacco cessation for the 5 specific target groups of the project. 
Pregnant women, teenagers, patients with diabetes or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as cardiovascular patients belong to clearly distinct groups and require a tailored approach to tobacco dependence treatment. 
The “TOB.g project” and ultimately these guidelines represent the first innovative action towards the scientific application of this principle in tobacco cessation.
