Documenting smoking Status: Trial of three strategies.

Abstract

A randomized trial at a family medicine center compared three ways of improving the rates of recording patients' smoking behavior: letter, telephone, and reminding physicians to inquire at visits. Telephone produced the highest rate of recordings, while physician reminder was most cost-effective. We recommend physician reminder with telephone calls from the practice nurse for patients who do attend.
