Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To provide a systematic review of smoking prevention and cessation interventions that have been conducted with cancer survivors.

DATA SOURCES:

Published research studies and government reports.

CONCLUSION:

Although few interventions have been developed to improve smoking prevention and cessation rates in cancer survivors, existing studies suggest that it is possible to decrease tobacco use in this high-risk population.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE:

Oncology nurses are in a unique position to build on the current literature to address cancer survivors' tobacco use as part of clinical care.
