Title: Efficacy of a Smoking Cessation Programme in a Smoking Cessation Service
Summary: The programme can be provided as individual and group. The individual treatment programme consists of 10 consultations; the first is the baseline and the remaining 9 are the follow-up. The baseline consultation lasts between 30 and 40 min, and at the end patients choose Quit-date. During this visit, which is always given by an Specialist on Smoking Treatment, the clinical and smoking history is taken, and various tests are performed: measurement of CO in expired air, spirometry and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. The follow-up visits are held at 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 10th and 12th weeks, then 4th, 6th and 12th months after quit-date, and are all independently conducted by Healthcare Professionals Specialist on Smoking Treatment. These consultations are to control withdrawal symptoms, provide cognitive behavioural treatment and prescribe drug therapy. Different tests are also performed, e.g. measurement of CO in expired air and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. Three times a week, the patients’ situation is considered in a clinical session held by all members of the Smoking Cessation Service, where each case is discussed and appropriate decisions are taken. The group treatment programme consists of 9 sessions. The first takes place a few days before quit-date and lasts approximately 80-90 min. During this session, the patients choose their quit-date and receive advice in preparing for it. They are then informed about the basics of withdrawal. In addition, various tests are performed: measurement of CO in expired air, spirometry and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. The remaining sessions are held at 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 10th, and 12th weeks, then at 4th and 5th months after quit-date. These sessions help to control withdrawal and prescribe drug therapy, as well as explain the different cognitive behavioural techniques to patients. Various tests are also performed: measurement of CO in expired air and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. The prescribed treatment is a combination of pharmacological and psychological treatment. The drug therapy consists of the different types of Nicotine Replacement Therapy used in Spain, bupropion or varenicline, or a combination of both. The psychotherapy consists of the following activities: self-monitoring, identifying high-risk situations, coping strategies, cognitive behavioural therapy and intra-treatment support. All patients attending the UET are referred by a doctor. Individual or group therapy is decided in the Smoking Cessation Service by health personnel or by patient preference.

The group of attended smokers consisted of more or less equal numbers of men and women, their mean age was 47,83, 67% of them suffered from smoking-related disorders, 43% suffered from psychiatric co-morbidities and 21% of them suffered from other addictions. The average number of cigarettes smoked daily was 28, and they suffered from high nicotine dependence (over 77% smoked their first cigarette within 30 min after waking up). The vast majority of patients seen (97.6%) received both pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy, either individually or in groups. Only 2.4% of them received just psychological treatmet. Treatment was individual for 87% of the patients and by group for the rest. Efficacy data at 6th, 12th, 36th, and 57th months follow-up were 58,5%, 54,9%, 42% and 35%, respectevely. >>
