The latest Australian Smoking Cessation Guidelines were released recently.

The document, Supporting smoking cessation: a guide for health professionals 2011, incorporates a number of significant new developments in both the science and practice of cessation support. The guide aims to be a practical, succinct and evidence-based resource that can be used by a wide range of health professionals working in a variety of settings.

The guide updates two previous publications: Smoking cessation guidelines  for Australian General Practice published by the Commonwealth of Australia in 2004 and Smoking cessation pharmacotherapy: an update for health professionals published by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners in 2007.

The guide is available from the RACGP website at www.racgp.org.au/guidelines/smokingcessation. Hard copies are not yet available.
