Abstract

Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) exposure is a serious health threat to infants and children. Clinical efforts, primarily educational, have been associated with modest improvements in ETS reduction. Smoking bans may provide a much larger impact but have yet to be systematically evaluated. Home smoking bans are also surrounded by social, economic, legal, and political challenges. Nurses, as health care providers, play a critical role in this comprehensive health promotion effort.
