Decision Aid Development for Cigarette Smokers Undergoing Surgery: Specific Aim 2
Trial status: Open for Enrollment
Why is this study being done?
Smokers have three choices when faced with surgery: keep smoking, quit for a short time around surgery or quit for good. In the first specific aim, a decision aid was designed to help facilitate the discussion of these choices between smokers and healthcare providers. This second aim will test whether this decision aid improves the decisional quality compared with standard methods used to discuss perioperative smoking.
